Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (Charges) Bill 2021, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Amendment (Cost Recovery) Bill 2021; In Committee
I thank Senator Faruqi for her question. I'll say for the third time: this is not a cost for students. I don't know how much clearer I or this government can be. As I've said several times in the committee stage already, a university would pay around $15,000 per year and, again, it would be introduced over three years. This is not a charge against students; this is a charge to universities and non-university providers.
