Environment Uni Courses Cut 30%

Posted on: Wed 21 Oct 2020

After passing Senate earlier this month, the Coalition’s ‘Job Ready Graduates Package’ has caused significant controversy in the academic sector.

Intended to encourage enrolment in courses with better job-prospects, the decision has been criticised as ill-informed and detrimental to various university courses.

While studying science degrees will be cheaper, funding will be cut by approximately A$10,000 per student.

To discuss the impacts this may cause, Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis spoke with Dianne Gleeson, Professor of Science at University of Canberra.
