13 September 2017
USC is participating in the 2017 Survey of Australian University Student Finances.
This study of the financial circumstances of students at Australian Universities is being undertaken by the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (MCSHE) for Universities Australia, of which USC is a member, and the National Union of Students.
From 13 September randomly selected undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework and research) students will receive an email from the MCSHE project team requesting participation in the survey. While completing the survey is voluntary, your participation is highly encouraged.
The purpose of the national survey is to understand the current financial circumstances of both domestic and international students studying at Australian universities. The findings of this study will benefit students by helping universities and government better understand students: their work patterns, income, family commitments and concerns.
The resulting report will compare the 2017 findings with the previous studies undertaken for Universities Australia by the MCSHE in 2012 and 2006 (University student finances in 2012).
