Tuition Fees and Applications for Degrees - New Evidence

Geoff Riley

1st April 2015

Increases in tuition fees have a negative effect on university applications, particularly for courses with lower expected salaries after graduation. The number of students attending university also falls when fees increase. But there is no evidence of a larger reduction in attendance for students from ethnic minority backgrounds or from communities with lower rates of participation in higher education.
