Reprieve from higher education funding cuts!

Last week the ABC reported a temporary reprieve to higher education funding cuts, with the Nick Xenaphon Team coming out in opposition to the proposed Higher Education Support Legislation Amendment (A More Sustainable, Responsive and Transparent Higher Education System) Bill 2017. NXT Higher Education spokesperson Rebekha Sharkie called for an independent review, and opposed the proposed changes to the HECS repayment threshold.

Southern Cross Postgraduate Association would like to thank all staff and students of Southern Cross University and our partners in the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA) & the NTEU for your support and solidarity in this campaign. Together we sent 942 emails to cross bench senators urging them to oppose the bill, as well as 350 hand written letters and media attention throughout the region.
