Event overview

The Federal Government's recent decision to deregulate fees and withdraw $1.1 billion in funding over three years from 2015 has been a game-changer for universities. What does this mean for a sector already struggling to readjust to a declining international student market? How will the individual universities evolve to fit the new paradigm?

Higher education plays a critical role in meeting the future workforce needs of industry and ensuring that graduates have the specific skills required in an innovative, knowledge-intensive economy. Targeted partnerships with the VET sector to deliver niche, flexible and specialised programs that service the needs of WA employers could also present new opportunities.

Questions to be addressed at this event include:

  • What will the new competitive landscape mean for Australian higher education in the current global market?
  • Can Australia reinstate itself as a world leader in education and innovation?

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA remains true to its purpose of providing platforms to inform and promote debate of critical issues and driving policy solutions and are continuing critical discussions for Australia’s economic, social and environmental development through a digital events program including exclusive livestreams, podcasts and video, as well as our virtual Trustee roundtable discussions.

CEDA is also moving to deliver hybrid events that include a livestream and a small audience in attendance. CEDA has worked with venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers adhere to government guidelines.
