University fees are on the rise.

Extract from ABC News

University fees are on the rise. Students will have to pay an extra $2,000 to $3,600 for a four-year course. That's a fee increase of 1.8 per cent next year, and 7.5 per cent by 2022.
The income level at which you will have to start repaying your HECS debt will also be reduced. Currently, you only have to repay your debt when you earn over $55,000. From July next year, you'll have to repay it once you hit $42,000.
Universities are also facing a 2.5 per cent efficiency dividend.
The only win for university students is the introduction of Commonwealth Supported Places in sub-bachelor programs like diplomas.
