Inquiry into the Higher Education Legislation Amendment Bill (No.3)
On 11 August 2004 the Senate referred to its
Workplace Relations and Education Legislation Committee a bill proposing
amendments to the Higher Education Support Act 2003 which include,
but are not limited to, certain funding adjustments under the Commonwealth
Grants Scheme for 2005 and 2006.
The committee will examine the amendment which will add
Melbourne University Private to the list of universities which are eligible
to receive Commonwealth funding. It will also examine in particular those
amendments which will allow universities to operate summer schools as they
do now; extend the time within which students must submit their requests for
Commonwealth assistance; define undergraduate and postgraduate higher
education awards; and provide for transitional arrangements for the
repayment of special purpose grants made under the Higher Education
Funding Act 1988.
The committee invites written submissions on the
proposed amendments. A public hearing will be held in Melbourne on 19 August
2004, with a reporting date of 2 September 2004.
We cannot process your submission unless full contact details are
supplied. Submissions should be submitted electronically (Microsoft
Word version 6.0 - 95 or above) and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
