Document Number: 6862Global Higher Education Rankings - This report is the first systematic and rigorous exploration of the affordability and accessibility of higher education within an international comparative context. The report examines data in 15 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States. Among the report's conclusions are that Finland and the Netherlands are the undisputed success stories of the survey in terms of accessibility and affordability. Both have large student bodies, high attainment rates, extensive grant programs, and student bodies that are reasonably reflective of broader society.
