We have to come to some sort of conclusion to this because we can't have rolling mass action that is focusing on disrupting our universities.— Dr Diane Parker, acting DDG of higher education and training
We recongnise that the 0% increase which was for only 2016 has resulted in a situation that has changed the landscape for higher education fees in a sense.— Dr Diane Parker, acting DDG of higher education and training
We cannot think that each institution on its own is going to independently set fees without having a cognisance of the entire system and what it means for higher education.— Dr Diane Parker, acting DDG of higher education and training
