Excerpt from 2011 AUQA audit into UWS

‘Student-to-academic staff ratios at UWS are higher than the benchmark group and the higher education sector as a whole, even when casual staff are included, but the ratio is increasing at a higher rate when casual staff are not included.

The proportion of casual staff at UWS is significantly greater than that of the benchmark group and the higher education sector as a whole, and is increasing. It is evident that UWS has been relying on employing more casual staff to support its expansion to date.’
