After being rejected by the senate in 2015 and again in 2015 the Governments 2014 budget measures to deregulate university fees, lower the government contribution per students and cut funding to research have be re-introduced.

A National Day of Action was held across campuses in Australia and called for the coalition to drop uni fee deregulation, drop any wait on newstart and fund higher education properly!
