The Australian Universities Accord Panel has released an Interim Report exploring possible ideas for the reform of Australia’s higher education system.

The Accord Interim Report outlines a vision for the future of higher education. It seeks to build a broad platform for change across the entire spectrum of higher education in ways that will benefit all Australians. To do this, the Interim Report presents areas for further consideration ahead of the Final Report.

In addition, the Interim Report proposes five immediate priority actions to address the fundamental challenges currently facing the Australian higher education system.

Following the release of the Interim Report, the Panel invites interested stakeholders to provide feedback and insights through a submissions process.

Further details on the Interim Report and the submissions process are available at the Department of Education's Interim Report page.
