Universities Australia wishes to express serious concerns regarding matters raised in the submissions from the Department of Defence and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade/Austrade.
Universities Australia strongly advocates that the Australian Government consider a coordinated approach to identifying and managing the risk of foreign interference in Australian universities. We are concerned the Bill is not proportionate to risk and would impose an onerous administrative impost on universities and on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Universities Australia welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Council for International
Education’s consultation paper on Growing International Education in Regional Australia.
This submission represents a broad sectoral view of the issues.
