To: Education Minister Dan Tehan

Education for all - Stop fee hikes!

Everyone deserves access to an affordable, quality education - and that shouldn’t depend on your bank balance.

But Dan Tehan has announced he wants to hike fees for a whole range of degrees, putting university out of reach for thousands of young people.

Gouging students won’t fix the funding crisis in higher education.

It’s not only wrong – it’s reckless. Higher education is critical for our long-term health, economy and society.

Tell Dan Tehan: we need Education for all - stop fee hikes!

#EducationForAll #StopFeeHikes

Why is this important?

Tertiary education is critical to our national interest and our future.

It’s the intellectual and economic engine room powering Australia in health, technology, research, ideas and innovation. If the Government continues down a path of funding cuts and hiked fees it will wreck our universities and put our long-term future at risk.

How it will be delivered

We will be delivering this petition to Minister Dan Tehan


Reasons for signing

  • A university education should be within the reach of those who value it. Education for all!
  • Student shouldn't not be disadvantaged for choosing an arts/law/humanities degree. I would allow would wager that most of our current politicians have a degree (some who have received these for free!) that is affected by these proposed changes. I wonder if that would have changed their mind as a 17/18year old?
  • I have a receipt for HECS the first year it was introduced. It is for an amount of $275 in total. That opened the door for the reintroduction of University fees.
