Abstract

The changes made to Australian higher education financing in the 1996-97 Budget are arguably the most significant since the abolition of tertiary fees in 1974. This paper examines the nature and extent of the changes in terms of what they mean for students enrolling for the first time in 1997 and beyond, and for current HECS debtors.
