On 27th November, Professor Paul Wellings, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia, delivered the 11th Annual Lecture.
Professor Wellings’s title was ‘The Architecture and the Plumbing: What features do the Higher Education systems in the UK and Australia have in common?’
We are today publishing the full text which, for the first time, includes some detailed accompanying slides comparing the UK and Australia.
Hard copies are also available and should land on the desks of everyone on the HEPI mailing list before Christmas. Please let us know if you would like to join our mailing list – especially if you are from one of our Partner institutions.
The lecture was the culmination of a year-long comparison of two higher education systems on opposite sides of the world. Our other pieces on Australia are available here:
