    I'm on mat leave (paid)so not working at the moment.. Ds1 is still in daycare 4 days. I agree those that don't want to work outside the home won't start just because childcare is free. Or perhaps they would if Abbott stays in power too much longer!!

    I currently don't work but if CC was free I'd go back doing casual relief work. As it is CC doesn't make financial sense for us. I wouldn't be going back full time though. That won't happen until our youngest is in school.

    Price increases aren't coming in until then anyway, so its not your uni absorbing the cost at all.

    I also think that anyone who has accepted a uni offer before the end of the month (May) wont be charged any extra at all. But you have to complete your degree by 2021(ish).

    But wouldn't someone's degree go up in 2016. As in that year onwards? Wouldn't the uni have meant that anyone starting a degree this year wouldn't have their degree raised from 2016?

    Not for those currently enrolled or who accepts an offer before 13 May (so too late for anyone who hasn't applied yet).

    "If you were enrolled in, or had accepted, a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) on or before 13 May 2014, either at a university or other higher education institution, you will continue to be charged under existing arrangements until you finish your study or until 31 December 2020 (whichever comes first).".... - education.gov.au


    The new repayment threshold and rate will still effect current students, but not what they are charged for their degree.

    Yep, Abbott or Pyne came out and said that current students wouldn't be affected by the price increases, but that's now been added to their never ending list of lies. Apparently prices will go up for all students when the change is implemented.

    Wait, I'm confused, so have they backed out of their promise that current students have until 2020 to finish their degree under the current fee structure or did they change their minds (again).

    If they have changed their minds I would have to seriously reconsider my decision to get my degree, the current fees is a debt that I find stressful enough as it is.

    That's not true. It will still be the same price for all current students.

    I hope so. A lot of the things that the libs have come out and said have been wrong. I know students starting after May 2014, will be stung by the new payment method part way through their degree despite Abbott claiming otherwise.

    Will try and find article stating current students will be affected.
