Universities Australia is the voice of Australia’s universities. When our universities are strong, so is our economy and the country as a whole.
Our role is to ensure that Australia has the policies that lead to a vibrant and internationally competitive university sector.
Our universities do so much more than teach our future highly skilled workforce. Australian universities are at the forefront of research into the causes and cures of many debilitating health conditions. Some of the life-changing inventions from Australia’s university researchers including world-first vaccines for cervical cancer and influenza, soft contact lenses, the Cochlear implant, spray-on skin for burns victims and a needle-free, refrigeration-free vaccine skin patch.
But if we want Australia’s potential to really take off, investment in our universities is critical.
