2018 University Student & Staff Numbers

Australian Universities and their counterparts report information to Government agencies and these statistics may be used to provide a basis for software licensing.  There are several advantages to this method:

  • Figures are reported by an independent body
  • The figures provide an accurate representation of the relative sizes of Member Institutions

This page provides an overview of figures currently being used, summarises the figures and provides them in a manageable format.
