Abstract

This study estimates a cost function for higher education in Australian universities using pooled series of cross-sectional data. The study enabled the quantification of the cost differences between levels of studies and subject areas. The resulting cost function is used to derive estimates of the overall cost of providing higher education to overseas students.
