The Australian Government has launched an Independent Review into Regional Education. This inquiry will look at the difficulties faced by rural students when attending university .

Now is the chance for parents, teachers and students to let the inquiry know why it is so difficult for regional students who want to move to Perth for a University Education in terms of costs and logistics – something that Perth students never have to face.

Submissions need to be in by 29 August and if there are enough submissions from the South West the committee may attend in person to hear the issues first hand. All the information can be found at the link below so please put forward a submission explaining the hardships that rural students face.
