What I think are transposed numbers on the public-private division of Commonwealth-supported student funding are entering mainstream media.
Unless the enrolment outcome is very different from what the government and its critics both expect, and there is a boom in humanities, business and law enrolments, then we will not cross over into a majority student funded system of Commonwealth supported places.
If enrolments had the same distribution between disciplines as in 2018, then the system would move from 42 per cent student funded to 48 per cent, as seen in the chart below.
One thought on “What would the public-private funding split be if the Tehan reforms are implemented?”
Indeed. The Government states:
‘Rebalance Commonwealth/student share from 58:42 to 52:48
‘8% increase in student contributions when fully implemented’
