Er is een nieuwe Education Indicators in Focus brief van de OESO en deze keer ligt de focus op internationale studenten en hoeveel deze moeten betalen voor hoger onderwijs in vergelijking met binnenlandse studenten.
De grafiek maakt inderdaad duidelijk dat dit behoorlijk kan verschillen:
Wat merkt men nog meer bij analyse:
- In most countries with available data, public educational institutions charge different tuition fees for national and foreign students enrolled in the same programme.
- In Australia, Austria, Canada, New Zealand and the United States, foreign students pay on average about twice or more the tuition fees charged to national students.
- In Australia and New Zealand, the estimated revenue from foreign students’ tuition fees exceeds one-quarter of the total expenditure on tertiary educational institutions.
- Recent reforms in Denmark, New Zealand and Sweden show that changes in foreign students’ fees are re ected by changes in the number of international new entrants.
Of ook samengevat:
The number of students enrolled in tertiary education outside their country of citizenship has been steadily increasing over the last 15 years. Some countries attract foreign students on a revenue-generating or at least a cost-recovery basis, while others do not differentiate between the tuition fees paid by national and foreign students. The evidence from recent tuition-fee reforms suggests that tuition fees influence the choice of destination countries among international new entrants. However, higher tuition fees do not necessarily discourage international students, and can contribute substantially to the funding of tertiary education.
