 The Global Economic Challenges (GEC) Network" presents
“Higher Education Access and Funding: Challenges and Policy Options”

14 May 2024 
Online and in person in London at Jeffery Hall, UCL

EIEF announced the conference, jointly organized by the Global Economic Challenges Network at Georgetown University, the Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, and the Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities and the Social Research Unit at University College London. The rising costs of tertiary education have imposed an increasing private financial burden on graduates, many of whom must embark upon post-college life with substantial levels of debt. Concurrently, the opportunities to access tertiary education remain unequal and are likely to be exacerbated by these growing costs. To address these issues, governments have adopted a range of polices to alleviate student debt while expanding access to educational opportunities. This one-day academic conference will feature sessions on addressing the challenges with expanding access to higher education and their associated funding systems and a policy panel on what lessons we can learn from models and experiences from around the world.
