Submission to the Universities Accord & Census

Updated: Dec 21, 2023

Dear members,


As Lisa mentioned during her update yesterday, UCA recently made a submission to the Universities Accord.



The process of responding to the Accord Interim Report reminded us that we know very little about our sector. We could not, for example, answer the following questions:

  • Which programs – if any – do all UCA member colleges offer?

  • What is the average size of UCA member colleges?

  • What is the staff-to-student ratio of UCA member colleges?

  • How much financial support (as a percentage of fees) do UCA member colleges offer?


To remedy our knowledge gap, we will soon be launching a national college census, and would be very grateful if you could complete it. Good data will help us design more impactful programs and explain who we are to governments, universities, and other stakeholders.


Kind regards,




Will Cesta

Executive Manager

University Colleges Australia
