2017 EAL AREA OF STUDY 2 PRACTICE TB4Copyright © Insight Publications 2017SCENARIO 1 –continuedSECTION C – Argument and persuasive languageScenario 1: Free university educationBackground informationOn 1 January 1974, the government removed university fees so that tertiary educationwould be more accessible to working- and middle-class Australians. In 1989, universityfees were reintroduced, to be paid for by the Higher Education Contributions Scheme(HECS). This is the system that is currently in place for Australian university students.It is now usually referred to as the HECS-HELP system.In 2014, the federal government suggested deregulating university fees (that is,allowing universities to set their own fees). This resulted in a new public debate aboutthe cost of higher education.The following article by Arjuna Bhamra was published in October 2016 inCampusChorus, a magazine run by and for Australian students.Bhamra is a current undergraduate student. He is completing a Bachelor of Commerceat an Australian university.
