Universities and Colleges in Australia
There are 39 universities with more than one million students enrolled, 37 of which are public institutions (2013). The female-male ratio for gross enrolment in tertiary education is 1.4:1 (2012). There is virtually no illiteracy among people aged 15-24.
Higher education is central to achieving the government’s vision of a stronger and fairer nation. In March 2010, the government initiated major reform of the higher education system, to ensure the sector’s fitness for purpose in meeting the needs of the Australian community and economy, following the recommendations of the final report of the Review of Australian Higher Education, published in December 2008.
The Diversity and Structural Adjustment Fund was launched by the government in January 2008 to promote structural reform in the higher education sector, greater specialisation among providers and better responsiveness to labour markets operating in the local or national interest.
