Cost-sharing and student support
Part of book or chapter of book
- Publisher: Oxford University Press
This chapter addresses the following key questions: What is cost-sharing in HE, and why and how has it become part of the HE policy landscape? What are the key cost-sharing policies? Have cost-sharing policies met their purported objectives and led to greater financial sustainability, equity, efficiency, and responsiveness of HE systems? It attempts to address these questions from a global perspective rather than relying on evidence from one particular country. It focuses exclusively on funding issues related directly to students, so excludes any consideration of, for instance, the public and private funding of research.
