The Turnbull government is bypassing the Parliament and cutting $2.2 billion from university funding. Universities Australia estimates that this means 9,500 uni places will be unfunded in 2018. It will be the same story in 2019.
Australian students and families should not be asked to miss out on a university education to help the Turnbull government pay for its $65 billion in tax cuts for multinationals and millionaires.
The Turnbull government is also trying to reduce the HECS repayment threshhold. That will hit households that are already doing it tough.
