Presidents Meet Mr Kinsella

The Presidents of all New Zealand Universities met with the Minister of Education during Winter Council of NZUSA in Wellington.

They spoke to Mr Kinsella in committee in response to an invitation from the Minister.

Among subjects covered were said to be membership of University Councils; student demonstrations and their effect on the community; bursaries — especially postgraduate bursaries, and possible changes to University Entrance standards in the light of rapidly rising enrolments.
