Targeted Tuition Fees: Is Means-Testing the Answer? HEPI Report 112
Usher, Alex; Burroughs, Robert
Higher Education Policy Institute
This Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) report focuses on international higher education financing, discussing the concept of 'targeted free tuition' -- the idea that, while tuition fees backed by income-contingent loans can improve access, they still do not do enough to help people from the very poorest households, who are typically the most debt averse. Targeted free tuition assumes some people should be partially or wholly exempt from fees. In this report, Alex Usher and Robert Burroughs explore examples of this approach around the world. [This report was co-published by Higher Education Strategy Associates.]
