Estimating the Cost to Government of Providing Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education

Report

This report estimates the cost to government of providing undergraduate higher education. It illustrates the sensitivity of our estimates to changes in the underlying assumptions, and examines the financial and distributional implications of various changes that have been proposed to the system. It also provides new estimates of the likely cost to government of offering a £10,000 loan to postgraduate students, as proposed in Autumn Statement 2014.
