Overview The Higher Education Support Act (HESA) is the current legislative basis for the Commonwealth to provide financial support for higher education through grants and other payments made largely to higher education providers; and through financial assistance to students (usually in the form of loans).

Measures funded under HESA include:

1. the Commonwealth Grant Scheme (CGS) - provides funding to the University (as a higher education provider) to help subsidise students’ tuition costs.
2. the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) arrangements - provides income contingent loans to help students meet their study costs.
3. Commonwealth Scholarships - assists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with costs associated with higher education.

In addition, HESA makes other grants available to higher education providers for a variety of purposes, including:

1. the Disability Support Program (DSP) - provides funding to eligible higher education providers to improve access for students with disabilities.
2. the Indigenous Support Program - provides grants to higher education providers to assist them to meet the needs of their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
3. the Structural Adjustment Fund - provided funding to assist universities to operate more competitively in the demand driven funding environment.
4. the Higher Education Participation and Partnership Program (HEPPP) - supported universities efforts to increase participation of people who are from low socio-economic status backgrounds to attend university. From 1 January 2015 replaced by the Higher Education Participation Program (HEPP).
5. grants to a limited number of National Institutes to support ongoing operations;
6. the Promotion of Excellence in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education - provides funding for initiatives to improve and recognise teaching and learning.
7. the Superannuation Program provides supplementary funding to eligible higher education providers to cover certain superannuation expenses for staff.
8. the Australian Maths and Science Partnerships Program (AMSPP) - seeks to improve student engagement in maths and science courses at university and schools, through innovative partnerships between universities, schools, and other relevant organisations.


The University is required to give to the Minister statistical and other information the Minister requests regarding the provision of higher education and compliance with this legislation.
