The study examines trends in participation and completion in third-level education, as well as factors such as system structure, institutional revenue and strategy over the last 15 years in nine case study higher education systems in order to understand better how different models of funding – and changes to these – affect students and institutions.

The countries covered by the study are Austria, Canada, UK-England, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Portugal and South Korea.
