Higher Education Support Act 2003
The Minister may, on behalf of the Commonwealth, enter into a funding agreement with a higher education provider relating to grants under this Part in respect of each year in a period of 3 years (the grant years ).
In negotiating the agreement the Minister must have regard to all of the types of matters that the provider has indicated to the Minister it wishes to be specified in the agreement. 30-25(2)
The agreement may specify conditions to which the grants are subject, that are additional to the conditions that apply under Division 36 .
It is a condition of the grants that the provider comply with the agreement: see section 36-65 .
However, the agreement must not specify as a condition to which the grants are subject a matter in respect of which the Minister could have made a determination under subsection 36-15(2) (or could have made such a determination but for subsection 36-15(3) ).
The Minister has the power under subsection 36-15(2) to determine that students are not to be enrolled as Commonwealth supported students in particular courses. The determination is disallowable (see subsection 36-15(3) ).
Where the agreement specifies conditions to which the grants are subject, that are additional to the conditions that apply under Division 36 , those conditions must not relate to industrial relations matters.
Without limiting subsection (2), the agreement may specify: (aa) (a)
(i) places in *undergraduate courses of study;
(ii) places in non-research *postgraduate courses of study;
(iii) places in courses of study in medical programs;
(iv) places in courses of study in *enabling courses;
the minimum *number of Commonwealth supported places that the provider must provide in the grant year or grant years, or the maximum number of Commonwealth supported places that the provider may provide in the grant year or grant years, or both; and
