Should Uni Funding be Tied to Performance?
Many universities in Australia these days get government funding based on how many students they take on. However, this may all be about to change, with talks that in the future, government funding for Australian universities could soon be based more on how students perform – examining academic results, whether they complete uni and whether they get a job. We ask, is it time university funding is tied to student academic performance?
