  • Examining trends in enrolment by institutional location shows that regionally headquartered universities saw growth of 17.8% -- somewhat below the national average. This includes the Regional Universities Network which saw growth between 2007 and 2012 of 15.4%.Metropolitan institutions saw greater degrees of expansion. Metro institutions with regional campuses, saw growth of 18.6% over this period and counted for 363,823 students out of 634,434 in 2012. Institutions without regional campuses saw the fastest growth, with their numbers increasing by 24.5%, admittedly off a low base.
  • The three largest states (New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland) recorded growth just under the national average. Western Australia (25.8%) and the Northern Territory (29.3%) saw much faster expansions off relatively smaller initial bases. The marked variation in state and territory aggregate outcomes (Table 5b) reflects the nature of the low SES measure which in large part (two-thirds weighting) is determined by the SES of the postcode of student home addresses and relies on a national ranking of postcodes using ABS household census data to determine an area’s SES. Under this ranking, states such as Victoria and Western Australia have smaller low SES populations from which students can be drawn simply because they have fewer low SES postcodes in the national ranking.
  • As a consequence of faster growth in equity group enrolments, the relative share of equity groups in total higher education enrolments has been increasing to 2012. Low SES students accounted for 17.3% of student enrolments in 2012, up from 16.2% of 2007 enrolments. This compares with a national target of 18.5% for 2014-15. Students with disabilities represented 5.2% of all domestic undergraduates in 2012, up from 4.4% in 2007, although still below the national reference target of their population share of 8%Indigenous, regional and remote students have seen static shares, CALD students have seen their share increase.

    27. 27. Connecting with Practitioners: Overview It is part of the National Centre‟s role and intent to be a resource for, and to interact with, practitioners. This session is an opportunity for a facilitated consultation/discussion session between the Centre and practitioners around evaluation, possible models, advantages and issues. Delegates are invited to contribute to the discussion about the role of the Centre in evaluation and hosting resources, looking at how to connect the Centre‟s role with the practitioner role, input and expertise, sharing current initiatives and enabling connections to be made between policy, research and practice over the next two years.

    32. 32. Closing the gap between Equity Policy, Research & Practice  In the case of student equity in higher education, any program or initiative needs to measure, as best it can, its effect on one or more of the following outcomes: 1. The number of disadvantaged students aspiring to higher education (e.g. applications) 2. The number of disadvantaged students accessing higher education (e.g. offers and enrolments) 3. The number of disadvantaged students surviving higher education (i.e. retention rates), and 4. The number of disadvantaged students succeeding in higher education (i.e. success and completion rates).
