TERRITORIANS ARE SUPPORTING THEIR UNIVERSITY BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT SERVES THEIR NEEDS AND OFFERS A STANDARD OF EDUCATION THAT IS NOT ONLY ACCEPTABLE BUT IS VALUED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. MR SPEAKER, IN THE HIGHER EDUCATION SECTOR, A TOTAL OF 4,378 STUDENTS WERE ENROLLED AT NTU IN 1996, AND OF THIS FIGURE, THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY GAVE THE NORTHERN TERRITORY AS THEIR HOME LOCATION. IN THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION & TRAINING SECTOR IN 1995, A TOTAL OF 7,805 STUDENTS WERE ENROLLED, AND OF THESE THE MAJORITY GAVE THE NORTHERN TERRITORY AS THEIR HOME LOCATION AS WELL. ANOTHER 1000 ARE MALAYSIAN STUDENTS STUDYING IN MALAYSIA THROUGH THE KOLEJ TAFE, IN SEREMBAM. THERE CAN BE LITTLE DOUBT, MR SPEAKER, THAT TERRITORIANS ARE SHOWING THAT THEY VALUE A UNIVERSITY WHICH THEY FEEL TO BE THEIR OWN. 15
