Job-Ready Graduates package

On 19 June 2020, Education Minister Dan Tehan MP unveiled a major package of reforms for Australia’s higher education sector.

The package includes significant changes to the way courses are funded and has a major focus on increasing university access and attainment for people living in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia. The Government says the reforms will create “job-ready graduates in the disciplines and regions where they are needed most”.

This page will collate IRU media releases, submissions and other updates related to the Job-Ready Graduates package.
