About universities in Australia

Australia has a highly developed system of higher education, including a number of universities that are almost as old as European settlement on the continent itself. Top universities in cities like Sydney and Melbourne were founded in the early 1850s, and continue to be among the nation’s most prestigious institutions.
 
Like most of its educational policy and other matters of government, tertiary education in Australia is regulated by the state governments rather than the federal government. While in some sense this means that Australia has several systems of higher education rather than just one, in practice the differences are slight. Greater variety is introduced to the Australian system by the fact that regulations, while strict when it comes to quality control, afford considerable freedom to individual institutions. Details of curricular development and pedagogy are left entirely or almost entirely in the hands of professors and school administrators, leaving institutions of higher learning free to develop as they see fit and respond to the changing needs of students and the economy.
 
A considerable controversy is brewing in the Australian higher education community regarding whether or not Australian universities ought to undertake reforms in order to meet the standards currently being developed by top universities in Europe. In Europe, under the auspices of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), major reforms are taking place to ensure that degrees earned in one country can be understood and evaluated in another. Standardization of courses, curricula, degree requirements, and quality assurance mechanisms all serve the purpose of uniting Europe’s schools into a single overarching super-system so that they can communicate and coordinate with one another more effectively.
 
Many in Australia believe that their country could benefit from adopting similar standards to those that are being implemented by the EHEA, despite the fact that Australia is ineligible for membership (Australia is, after all, about 8,000 miles away from Europe). Proponents of such measures argue that the increasingly globalized and interconnected economies of the 21st century necessitate the development of educational systems that produce graduates who are qualified to compete in a global job market. Opponents, on the other hand, argue with good reason that Australia already has an extremely effective education system that is rated as one of the best in the world, and that there is no need for major overhauls aimed simply at mimicking Europeans.
 
Regardless of the direction that educational leaders in Australia choose to pursue, the country’s affluence and extreme political stability provide the foundation for considerable success in the future. One of the most well-educated societies on the planet is unlikely to abandon its finely-honed quality controls and highly-regarded institutions regardless of economic or historical circumstances. It seems eminently likely that Australia’s universities will help bring the country into another century of prosperity and peace.
