SENATOR BROWN AND MICHAEL ORGAN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGONG

Tomorrow, Senator Bob Brown and Michael Organ will visit the University of Wollongong to discuss the unacceptably high level of debt facing university students.

“The University of Wollongong has the nation’s highest HECS debt with 3325 students in the Wollongong postcode area owing an incredible $31.95 million in Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) debt.”

“The Howard Government’s creation of $100,000 plus degrees is putting tertiary education beyond the reach of students in Cunningham and around Australia,” Michael Organ said.

When: 10:30am Thursday 2 September 2004

Where: Duck pond lawn at the University of Wollongong.
