University funding frozen and students facing lifetime caps on amount they can borrow
ABC19.12.17 6:19 am
UTAS only thinks of itself as a cash cow that depends on providing a service for fee paying overseas students especially from the rising middle class of Chinese students from a nation that does not practice democracy or in fact a stuff about Australia apart from using our national interest solely for its own gains.
It will become increasingly questionable by the Australian public as to why we are supporting an alien nation who is currently seen as posing a threat both economically and militarily to us yet as taxpayer we are prepared to be exploited to fund new university facilities on the face of “primarily” funding and advantaging overseas students.
I am not suggesting that we should not accept
fee paying overseas students but I am concerned we are overreaching by the level of service that we provide that now appears to becoming a financial burden on Australian society to shoulder.
Perhaps if UTAS put an end to its rather profligate plans of moving perfectly good and adequate facilities to places destined to become tidal in short order they might be able to manage the money squeeze ...
It annoys me that these same people who are now making these changes actually had a ‘free’ university education. It almost seems like they want to pick and choose who goes to uni and who doesn’t according to the wealth of a family. It is pretty much hypocritical, it should be free to everyone to further their education without gov’t interference.
