Funding in Australian Universities will be Tied to Graduate Jobs

Funding in Australian Universities will be Tied to Graduate Jobs

University funding will be linked to the graduates' number who obtain a job and student satisfaction with standards of teaching below the new model to be executed in the next year. 

The government will spend an additional $80 million in courses at bachelor-level, as it completed two-year freeze on funding in Australian Universities, but tertiary education institutes will have to show their progress against four parameters to access the money.  

The funding scheme based on the performance will take into account of outcomes in graduate employment, student achievement, student experience, and cooperation rates of low-socioeconomic status and Native students.  

Report on Education System in Australian Universities

Mr. Tehan, Education Minister, told the model would give a bonus for universities to create job-ready graduates. This report reveals that while we have an international standard higher education system, it requires to be more productive, more sustainable, and fit for the purpose.

Below the scheme, student progress will be evaluated by first-year dropout rates; meanwhile, student experience will depend on satisfaction with the quality of teaching. 

The report suggests that unallocated money remains in the sector of higher education, but negotiated parameters are placed on Australian universities that fail to reach the performance standards. 

The panel recommended conditions may comprise new reporting conditions or measures of transparency or project-based initiatives. These requirements would be strives at enhancing quality and performance in the fields where the university managed poorly.

Also on the 7th Aug meeting agenda between the Minister of Education and vice-chancellors are cyber security and the presence of uncertain Confucius Institutes on campuses of the university.
