WHEREVER POSSIBLE, MR SPEAKER, I AM INFORMED THAT THE UNIVERSITY ALSO OFFERS A VARIETY OF OFF-CAMPUS STUDY MODES TO ENSURE THAT EVEN THOSE PEOPLE IN THE REMOTEST PARTS OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION. FURTHER, I AM ADVISED THAT THE UNIVERSITY IS EMBRACING THE POSSIBILITIES OFFERED BY DELIVERING COURSES ON-LINE AND I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL SEE EVIDENCE OF THIS IN THE COMING TWELVE MONTHS. FINALLY, MR SPEAKER, ON THE MATTER OF STUDENTS AT THE NTU, A FURTHER INDICATOR OF HEALTHY GROWTH AT THE UNIVERSITY IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF ITS STRONG, STUDENT- DIRECTED STUDENTS' UNION. MR SPEAKER, I WOULD NOW LIKE TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO THE UNIVERSITY'S RESEARCH PROFILE. THE NTU'S GROWTH IN RESEARCH IS OF ENORMOUS BENEFIT TO THE NORTHERN TERRITORY.
