June video: The Abbott Budget and Curtin University


In this month’s video post I discuss the Federal Budget’s implications for the education sector and Curtin’s response to the challenges it presents. I also talk about my first visit to Curtin’s campuses in Malaysia and Singapore.

    Two WA Universities have “frozen” fees for this coming study period. What is Curtin’s response?

    Dear Alma

    Thank you for your question. As you would be aware, the Budget needs to be passed through Parliament to take effect. In response to any reductions in Government subsidies that are approved, Curtin will need to ensure that we can continue to offer high quality education and support services to our students and that the University remains in a financially sustainable position. On this basis, we anticipate that student fees will rise. However, fees will not increase until 2016. Students who enrolled before 13 May 2014 will not be affected until 2020, and those who enrolled after that date will not be affected in 2014 and 2015.

    With best wishes
