“Demand for higher education remains strong, but we want to ensure that background is not a barrier to university. Our reforms expect institutions to do more to attract applicants from disadvantaged backgrounds.
“Although our student completion rates compare well internationally, we want to reduce the number of students who don’t complete their studies. We are improving information for prospective students so that they can make more informed choices and we are committed to a better overall student experience.”
