In My Own Time: Tuition Fees, Class Time and Student Effort in Non-Formal (Or Continuing) Education
Bolli, Thomas; Johnes, Geraint
Journal of Education and Work, v28 n6 p592-606 2015
We develop and empirically test a model which examines the impact of changes in class time and tuition fees on student effort in the form of private study. The data come from the European Union's Adult Education Survey, conducted over the period 2005-2008. We find, in line with theoretical predictions, that the time students devote to private study increases with tuition fees but decreases with class time, other things being equal.
