NZ Universities say online learning will not be the end of degrees

A growing cohort of Australian graduates are leaving university environment with more debts and few job prospects, the report says. Up to 40 per cent of existing degrees will become obsolete in Australia, an Ernst and Young report says. Universities need to move towards “lifelong learning”, delivered largely online, in the next five years to survive, according to the firm’s new research paper on the university of the future. However, executive director of Universities New Zealand Chris Whelan said that’s not what the market is indicating in New Zealand.  Chris Whelan, executive director of Universities New Zealand, says Kiwi universities outperform Australian counterparts when it comes to producing graduates that get jobs. “If the assumption that universities and polytechs were simply providing knowledge, they would be right, but that’s not what we provide,” said Whelan.
