Please join us for a discussion of Labour’s new zero-fee policy, university funding and rankings, looking at the key details of the new policy in the historical NZ context.
What are the zero fee policy’s merits and limitations, such as possible impacts on participation in general and for people from lower socio-economic backgrounds? What are some of the unintended consequences? What are the possible changes in future per-student government funding? And what is the relationship between funding and university rankings?
