Australian undergraduate teaching

In Australia, the pressure to combat declining science undergraduate enrollment has resulted in dumbed-down courses with lower standards enrolling many unprepared  students (a worldwide theme, mind you). Whilst keeping the departments afloat – at least temporarily – the long-term damage to education and science is huge. The other logical extension, recruiting foreign students, has lead to interesting, if flawed, experiments in foreign campuses.
