Higher education has expanded in most developed and developing countries as part of a shift from elitist to mass education systems. Since national budgets are constrained and demand is ever increasing, countries have resorted to a combination of private provision and public policies to promote equal access to higher education - such as tuition financing and scholarships - while relying on market competition to deliver on enrollment expansion and education quality while keeping fees at bay. In this thesis we investigate the effects of tuition financing on student enrollments and migration from cities of different sizes, and we also look at the effects of provider competition on city-level higher education outputs, such as enrollments and education quality.
