Professors from the Faculty of Economics prepare a study on the relationship between university fees and academic performance

The study, conducted by Pilar Beneito, and researchers from the José Emilio Boscá and Javier Ferri Institute of International Economics, analyzes the relationship between the level and structure of university fees and the academic performance of students.

  • College students react to a rate increase with greater effort that results in a lower repetition rate and better grades.
  • The authors advocate a tiered fee design, with more expensive fees for those who repeat the course.

An interesting feature of this rate increase is that it has been greater for subject repetitions than for first enrolments. Using data from a sample of students at the University of Valencia, the authors study the impact of recent fee increases at this institution on (1) the average number of times the student repeats each subject, (2) the probability of passing the subject on the first attempt, and (3) the average grades. The analysis uses a statistical model of differences-in-differences in which the control group is formed by those students who have not been affected by the increase in fees because they are exempt from them (basically, students from large families and those who suffer some disability).
