The Education Minister is confident he can negotiate with Senate crossbenchers to get the package through Parliament by November.

"If we don't act and act now, we risk Australia's higher education system falling into a downward spiral towards mediocrity," he said.

Opposition higher education spokesman Kim Carr says the changes have been rushed and will burden students with crippling debts.

"This is a program for $100,000 university degrees and a generation of debt for tens of thousand of Australian families," Senator Carr said.

He also accused Mr Pyne of threatening cuts to research funding if the higher education changes do not get through the Parliament.

"This is a minister who's quite prepared to say anything and do anything to get this warped program through the Senate," he said.

Clive Palmer says his Senators will oppose the higher education overhaul.

Asked if there was any part of the package he could support, he said. "Nothing, absolutely nothing."

a bad deal for the future of education...

Students will be asked to pay more for higher education under the Federal Government's proposed legislation introduced into Parliament today.

Education Minister Christopher Pyne introduced the legislation this morning, saying it is a "good deal" for students.

The main aspects include the deregulation of university fees and changes to interest rate arrangements for student loans.

Mr Pyne says the legislation will ensure Australian universities can compete globally by setting their own course fees and choosing which courses they offer.

"Deregulation is the only way to respond to what students and employers want," he told Parliament.
