Abstract After an introduction and setting the scene for change in tertiary education this paper will look at one major aspect of this change, that is the change in the expectations and satisfaction levels of the student population now that this population is paying fees directly, rather than indirectly via taxes, for its education. In particular it will concentrate on full fee students and specifically on those students coming from overseas. It will look at the problems involved in being an overseas student in Australia, the problems that institutions have in providing solutions to these problems and what is expected of the institutions and the students in the future if the changes put in place are to be successful for everyone involved.
