    off-topic - The real costs of free university: Lessons from the UK

    21 October 2017

    The question of who should pay for higher education continues to be hotly debated across the world, and in recent months the movement towards free university has gained momentum. Earlier this year, New York became the first US state to offer all but its wealthiest residents free college tuition. Meanwhile, the UK Labour Party pledged to abolish fees entirely in their 2017 manifesto, with Andrew Adonis, the original architect of fees in England, adding to calls for their abolition.

    Proponents of the free university movement are typically motivated by concerns about rising inequality in higher education access and falling enrolments. Fees are seen as a financial barrier which could particularly exclude young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Yet, these same concerns also preoccupy those in favour of fees; they argue that fees inject more money into the sector, allowing universities to expand to accommodate more marginal students, and generate money to support them.

    A key question, therefore, is whether it is possible to charge relatively high tuition fees and also protect enrolments, access and university quality, or whether tuition fees stand in the way of these goals. In a recent paper and report, we examine this question in the context of the English higher education system which has, in the two decades since 1998, moved from a no-fee, low-aid university system to one in which tuition fees, at £9,000 per year, are among the highest in the world.
