Tuition Fees and Student Financial Assistance: 2010 Global Year
Marcucci, Pamela; Usher, Alex
New England Journal of Higher Education, Apr 2011
Since the start of the global financial crisis a little over two years ago, many concerns have been raised on how it might affect funding to higher education and whether or not it might hasten moves toward greater cost sharing. While, globally, some steps have been taken in this direction, in most countries, hard decisions have yet to be taken on this issue. This article presents the results of the authors' inaugural annual survey of global trends, in tuition fees and student financial assistance, which examined the "G-40" of higher education--that is, 40 countries that, combined, account for 90% of global university enrollments and 90 percent of global scientific research production. Though G-40 is obviously not an exhaustive list, comprehending the main lines of policy in these countries provides an essentially comprehensive global picture without the need to examine policy in all the world's 200-plus states.
