Torrens University Enterprise Agreement

Filed under:Uncategorized — posted by admin on December 19, 2020 @ 8:43 am

Australia`s smallest universities are private and therefore do not rely on normal public policy, funding or policy. The University of Divinity, formerly Melbourne College of Divinity, reported only 713 students in 2016. But it is a specialized university that does not expect to offer a full range of programs. It is supported by more than 30 partners in churches and Christian orders that somewhat compensate for their economic disadvantage. Currently, an Australian university with fewer than 10,000 students would struggle to maintain a wide range of in-depth programs and research in all its fields, which many consider necessary to be a full university. In 2016, Bond University reported only a student occupancy rate of 5,645, a decrease of 7% since 2009. But the burden on students has recovered over the past three years. It is a private non-profit university, supported by significant public grants, and is expected to continue with the support of private sponsors.

This applies not only to universities, but also to faculties, study methods and student groups. It can even have an impact on the future of some universities. Southern Cross University in northern New South Wales now has only a student occupancy rate of 9,743, which has fallen by 4% since 2009.

The internal bachelor`s degree load, which was subject to the application system, has decreased further, but the end of this policy was to give the university time to rebuild, and its total burden for students increased by 6% and 5% in 2016 and 2017. The reduction in staff and salaries has been facilitated in recent times by the fact that universities are asking, after Murdoch University, for the termination of their enterprise contract, which provides for higher salaries and better provisions for redundancies than the basic price. In 2016, the University of Torrens Australia announced an occupancy rate of just over 3,000 students. It was officially launched in 2014 and has grown strongly since then. It is supported by Parents-Laureate International Universities, a for-profit chain of nearly 70 universities in 29 countries. Other challenges lie ahead with the Federation University of Ballarat and Gippsland, as well as victoria University in Melbourne`s western suburbs. These programs are derived from the deep tradition and expertise of these universities in distance education. But Swinburne University in Melbourne`s eastern suburbs is able to establish a vast online education program without the same tradition. Australian universities can cut their budgets fairly quickly because they have very high casualization rates.

Australia also does not have a North American Tenure system that protects academics arrested from dismissal, except in cases of the “financial need” of the institution that threatens the survival of the institution as a whole. Universities are likely to continue to restructure their campuses, faculties and forms of study in response to changes in funding arrangements, student demand, research results and their own priorities.
