Scoop Audio: Dr Cullen Talks Tertiary Funding

Tertiary Education Minister Dr Michael Cullen explains future directions for funding tertiary organisations


Today Tertiary Education Minister Michael Cullen held a press conference in his office to discuss future directions for funding tertiary organisations.

"Funding will no longer solely be driven by what students decide to enrol in. Rather we are moving to a system driven more by the outcomes we need so the government can achieve its economic and social priorities.

"We want a system that will also be flexible enough to cope with the changing skill needs of the economy.

"The changes will mean, for example, that courses that may have a low return to the organisation, but the potential for high uptake and be of great relevance, will be allowed to prosper," explained Dr Cullen in a media statement about the changes that will occur in the tertiary sector.
