Cost of a degree 'to rise to £26,000' after tuition fee hike

http://bathknightblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/telegraph-logo.jpgBy Graeme Paton. Graduates face being left with debts of almost £26,000 after universities revealed that the cost of a degree course would rise to a new high next year. Official figures show that annual tuition fees will increase by around two per cent to an average of £8,647 for new students starting in 2014. Almost three-quarters of universities and colleges in England will charge the maximum amount – £9,000 – for at least one course, it emerged. This is up from just six-in-10 in 2013. Read more...

New study reveals huge student visa costs to universities

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Peta Lee.

Ces grandes écoles qui rémunèrent leurs élèves - coût annuel de formation de 57.500 euros par étudiant pour l’ENS de Lyon

http://www.ifrap.org/ifrap-dist/img/fondation_ifrap.gifEn plein débat sur la réforme du cycle universitaire, il est bon de rappeler que l’État français n’hésite pas à dépenser pour certains élèves qui ont réussi les concours les plus réputés du milieu académique. Ces étudiants ont ainsi le privilège d’être gratifiés par l’État en contrepartie d’un contrat les liant au service public. Néanmoins, plusieurs rapports, notamment ceux de la Cour des comptes en 2012, rendent compte du caractère laxiste de la politique de suivi des élèves à leur sortie de l’école. Un laxisme à déplorer quand on considère les montants investis (au bas mot 35 millions d’euros par an) par la collectivité sur la formation de ces profils.
Coût d’un élève et contrat décennal

En absence d’une comptabilité analytique fiable pour ces écoles nationales, le calcul du coût de ces élèves est un exercice périlleux, néanmoins la Cour des comptes a estimé que pour les Écoles Normales Supérieures le coût annuel total d’un élève/étudiant (hors doctorants) peut être estimé à 42.700 euros à Ulm, 44.700 à Lyon et 33.000 à Cachan. Si nous prenons en compte le fait qu’un professeur des universités ou un maître de conférence assume aussi des fonctions de recherche que nous devons retrancher dans les calculs, il en ressort un coût moyen de la formation de 23.000 euros à Lyon et de 17.000 à Cachan. Ajouté à cela la rémunération des normaliens, le coût annuel de leur formation s’élève à 57.500 euros pour l’école de Lyon et 50.700 pour celle de Cachan. Suite de l'article...
A rapprocher d'un autre article: Un étudiant à l’université coûte en moyenne 8000 euros par an.

http://www.ifrap.org/ifrap-dist/img/fondation_ifrap.gif In the debate on the reform of university studies, it is worth remembering that the French government does not hesitate to spend some students who passed the most renowned academic competition. More...

Un étudiant à l’université coûte en moyenne 8000 euros par an

http://www.kpmg.com/FR/fr/Contact/PublishingImages/attacheepresse.jpgUn étudiant à l’université coûte en moyenne 8000 euros par an à l’Etat, selon le Premier Observatoire KPMG des Universités & Écoles en France. Cinq ans après la promulgation de la loi LRU, cet Observatoire des Universités & Écoles en France met en exergue des indicateurs financiers pour les établissements d’enseignement supérieur, notamment le budget par étudiant, le taux d’encadrement ou le poids de la masse salariale. Il a été réalisé à partir des données financières publiques de l’exercice 2011 de 17 établissements d’enseignement supérieur dont 12 universités pluridisciplinaires et 5 instituts ou écoles dans le domaine des sciences de l’ingénierie. Télécharger l'Observatoire des universités et des écoles.
Selon Christian Liberos, Associé KPMG « L’enjeu pour les universités et écoles françaises est de demeurer des acteurs reconnus et attractifs, capables de rivaliser avec la concurrence européenne et mondiale ».
Coût par étudiant: la France se situe dans la moyenne des pays de l’OCDE

Le coût moyen d’un étudiant en France est de 8 000 euros par an en université, contre 21 000 euros dans les écoles et instituts. Selon les universités, il varie de 4,5 k€ à 10,9 k€ alors qu’il s’élève à 21 k€ dans les écoles et instituts de notre panel. La France se situe dans la moyenne des pays de l’OCDE avec une dépense moyenne de 58 860 $PPA pour un parcours dans l’enseignement supérieur, soit environ 4 ans. Suite de l'article...

Horizon 2020 update: EUA gives further support to European Parliament’s position on Cost Model

http://www.eua.be/images/logo.jpgAt a press conference on 28 May at the European Parliament convened by Mr Christian Ehler, MEP and Rapporteur on the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation, EUA joined Mr Ehler in calling for the retaining of a reimbursement model based on the recognition of full costs in Horizon 2020, the next EU framework programme for research and innovation (2014-2020).
Mr Ehler invited EUA and EARTO (European Association of Research and Technology Organisations) to express their views on this key issue in the present “trilogue” discussions (between the European Parliament, Council and the Commission) and in advance of the forthcoming Competitiveness Council (member states) held last week.
Following its input statement on the Rules for Participation, published in 2012, EUA has strongly supported in recent months the European Parliament’s proposal for retaining the option for reimbursement of research costs based on full costing methodologies. The Parliament is the sole institution in the negotiations advocating in addition to a flat rate model a reimbursement option based on full costing methodologies for those universities that are able to identify the full costs of a project.

Two-thirds of pupils 'alarmed by rising cost of a degree'

http://bathknightblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/telegraph-logo.jpgBy . Universities will be forced to provide local schoolchildren with clear advice about the price of degree courses amid fears too many teenagers are being put off higher education by an increase in tuition fees, it was announced today. The Government’s Office for Fair Access said academics must “do more to reach out to potential students” in return for the right to charge up to £9,000-a-year for undergraduate courses. The comments came as a study published today found that two-thirds of schoolchildren have “significant concerns” about the cost of university. Although the majority of schoolchildren still aspire to higher education, figures show 65 per cent were worried about fees, living expenses and the economic value of a degree. The Sutton Trust, a charity promoting social mobility, which published the study, used the findings to call for the introduction of a new system of means-tested tuition fees, claiming that children are facing potential debts of £40,000.

How much do teachers cost?

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fKag1zsmmFA/TmhpGfmaPZI/AAAAAAAAADE/l2BFF4kPiY8/s1600/Bandeau904x81.pngBy Eric Charbonnier and Etienne Albiser. Can increasing the salaries of teachers lead to better learning outcomes? Does reducing class size have a positive effect on learning outcomes? Given the current background of tight public budgets, governments seeking to ensure value for money must ask themselves these questions before increasing the salary cost of teacher per student, as teachers account for a major part of education expenditure.
The latest edition of Education Indicators in Focus highlights that the salary cost of teacher per student is a combination of four factors: teachers’ salary, class size, the number of teaching hours in front of a classroom and the number of hours of instruction received by students. Read more...

Full cost model: important driver

http://www.scienceguide.nl/media/1131639/european_unionflags.jpegThe European University Association clings on to full cost model in Horizon 2020. Later this week the hot potato will be debated by European Parliament, Commission and Council.
The European University Association (EUA) sees the removal of the option for reimbursement based upon full costing methodologies as being both a step backward and counterproductive with respect to another key policy goal: the modernisation of Europe’s universities, in particular their financial sustainability. “Horizon 2020 as a flagship to enhance Europe’s research and innovation capacities needs to take a lead position here to strengthen European Universities’ competitiveness globally”, he suggested. At a press conference by Mr Christian Ehler (MEP and Rapporteur on the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation), the EUA joined Mr Ehler in calling for the retaining of a reimbursement model based on the recognition of full costs in Horizon 2020, the next EU framework programme for research and innovation.

More on the Costs of Higher Education

http://www.cbpp.org/images/cms/3-19-13sfp-f5.jpgBy Steven L. Taylor. Apropos of James Joyner’s post on tuition costs, I had read a post over at HuffPo yesterday called Rich Colleges, Poor Professors. The piece highlights the low pay of adjuncts at American universities and is ultimately a call for unionization.
Setting aside one’s views on unionization, I would note that basic fact of large numbers of part time faculty is a real issue and underscores that the increases in tuition that we have been seeing in higher education is not flowing into the pockets of the faculty. The piece cites a Chronicle of Higher Education piece that notes that 70% of college faculty are non-tenure track.  While there is no breakdown of part-time v. full-time in the story, the bottom line is that non-tenure track faculty are cheaper than tenure-track faculty.

Foreign students happy to be here, but it costs

http://resources2.news.com.au/cs/australian/paid/images/sprite/module-headings-full-width.pngBy Bernard Lane. THE high cost of living is an increasing cause for complaint among international students, who are otherwise pretty happy with their decision to study here.
Only 51 per cent of overseas students in Australia for higher education were satisfied with living costs, according to just-released results from the 2012 International Student Survey.
This was much worse than the 2010 survey, when 61 per cent of students were content with living costs in Australia.
And it was 13 percentage points below the international benchmark for satisfaction with living costs.
Tuition fees and the cost of living for overseas students in Australia have jumped 166 per cent over a decade, the Boston Consulting Group estimated recently. Read more...
