Summary This submission to the Senate Inquiry into higher education finds that poorer students already have a significantly lower level of university participation and that this is likely to worsen under the Government's proposals. It argues that the package will contribute to growing divides in three areas: a divide between those people able to attend university and those who do not; inequality between the universities that poorer and wealthier students attend; and a disparity in the capacity of universities to deliver quality education
