The Economics of the Open University of the United Kingdom.
Rumble, Greville W. S. V.
The paper starts with a general description of the Open University's teaching system as it operated in 1976, and student progress through the system. It then analyzes the University's cost structures on the basis of the University's 1976 Recurrent Estimates, and by indicating, on the basis of the information given, estimated average, marginal, and incremental recurrent costs per undergraduate, and shows how average costs per undergraduate will change given various levels of course provision and undergraduate student numbers. Finally, the paper tentatively indicates recurrent costs per Open University graduate. (Author/MSE)
