NCSEHE Equity Fellowship report by Matt Brett (La Trobe University) identifies opportunities for recalibrating and strengthening evaluation of student equity in higher education.

Findings from this Fellowship informed an Operational Framework for Equity and Accountability—providing direction to policymakers and institutional leaders—through which strategic priorities for change can generate continuous system-wide reforms.

'Equity Student Participation in Australian Higher Education' examines trends over a six-year period which has been a time of marked change in Australian higher education.

While there has been substantial debate about the impact of the expansion in opportunity in higher education, evidence on outcomes is only really beginning to emerge in the form of patterns of attrition, completion and post-graduation outcomes.

In 2018, the NCSEHE will report on this evidence through an analysis of enrolment data in a briefing note on equity performance and reports from key research projects in this area.

National and international information sharing strengthens our collective ability to facilitate positive outcomes for disadvantaged students.

NCSEHE Senior Research Fellow Nadine Zacharias and Melbourne-based university representatives were privileged to host delegates from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana this month.

The group discussed the challenges faced by low SES students, and the institutions which support them, in the context of national policy approaches and institutional realities.

An Australian-first study has revealed regional students across every state and territory are turning to metropolitan universities at an unprecedented rate.

The new study, funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) at Curtin University, and led by La Trobe University researchers, Dr Buly Cardak and Matt Brett and Dr Mark Bowden of Swinburne University, shows the number of regional students across Australia moving to a city location to study increased by more than 76 per cent between 2008 and 2014.
