2005 – Submission to the “VSU” Senate Inquiry

Attachment: CAPA Submission

The services provided by all student organisations, and in particular by postgraduate student organisations, have evolved in response to the needs of students. Postgraduate organisations are at the forefront of providing for the needs of today’s students in an environment dramatically changed and changing. The services postgraduate organisations provide vary depending on the pattern of enrolment, the relationship to other student organisations, whether service provision is centralised in one body or distributed amongst several, and also on the level and security of funding.

This submission will address the terms of reference from a broad perspective,
linking the impact at the individual postgraduate student and university level to
the consequences at the higher education sector and international levels.
