Pyne looks to curb growth in student numbers

Federal education minister Christopher Pyne has commissioned a review of demand-driven funding for university places

The move is not unexpected and was flagged by Pyne in the lead up to the September federal election. Both he and previous Labor higher education minister Kim Carr, have expressed support for capping university places, suggesting it is necessary to protect the quality and reputation of Australia’s tertiary qualifications.

The review will be conducted by former Howard government education minister David Kemp, and Andrew Norton, higher education director of the Grattan Institute think tank. They will report to the government by mid-February 2014.
