University fees on the rise

Wednesday 29th November / posted by Danae Gibson

As the university year winds down for students across the state, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the work of students at University of Notre Dame in Fremantle.

The Federal Government is set to increase student fees and cut funding to universities from July next year. This plan could have devastating consequences for those studying, leaving students in significant amounts of debt, which they have to pay back sooner. Some groups are worried this rise in fees will put students off studying, and impact most on mature aged, disadvantaged and regional students. Abbey Letizia Reports.

Produced with the assistance of the Department of   Communications and the Arts via the   Community Broadcasting Foundation. Find out more at  www.cbf.org.au.
