Attachment: CAPA Submission
Australia’s Universities: Building our future in the world. A White Paper on Higher Education, Research and Innovation
Response by the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations September 2006
The Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA) is the national peak body of postgraduate student organisations representing Australia’s 263,500 postgraduate students, including 48,200 research students and 215,300 students undertaking coursework qualifications.
CAPA is pleased to participate in the ALP higher education policy development process. We hope that the consultative approach, in marked contrast to that of the current government, will lead to significant improvements in postgraduate education.
