Briefing Note: Equity student participation in Australian higher education 2014–2019

The 2020 NCSEHE Equity Briefing Note reports on undergraduate student data collected by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE).

These data are also reported on the NCSEHE Student Equity Data Page. The page is an interactive resource that allow users to make comparisons between institutions, as well as at the national, state or territory, and institutional grouping level.

The Briefing Note outlines trends over the latter half of the past decade, from 2014 to 2019. This period saw a tapering off of growth in domestic undergraduate enrolments in Australia, with an increase in headcount to 765,594 in 2019, or growth of around 8.4% since 2014.
