New Languages and Landscapes of Higher Education

Cost-sharing in higher education is now a global phenomenon, underpinning much of its expansion and growing participation. Cost-sharing policies seek to alter the balance of private and public funding to higher education, and most do this by shifting more higher education costs away from government and taxpayers and onto students and their families. At the same time, such policies raise broader issues about the nature and the aims of higher education. This chapter addresses the following questions: What are the policy objectives of cost-sharing in higher education and what different forms do these policies take? What theoretical and practical rationales frame cost-sharing policies? And how have these changed and evolved over time? What alternative perspectives should inform their appraisal? The chapter addresses these questions by tracing the development of higher education student funding policies in the UK while also calling on experiences in other countries.
