Attachment: CAPA Paper
Earlier in the year I worked out a model showing indicative value of HDR students to universities in the new funding formulas. In May DETYA released a briefing paper on implementation of the RTS which made a significant change to the formulas in the White Paper by weighting completions by RFM. Accordingly I have recalculated the model to reflect this change. Please note that this is only for indicative purposes. The key point is the emphasis on completions.
HDR load will be calculated on a discipline weighted basis for HECS-exempt domestic students. Using 1999 data, HDR load will translate to each student being worth $2011pa in the low band and $4726pa in the high band. (In practice load will be averaged over most recent two years of load data)
