Finances and costs of higher education institutions

To compare the use of resources and services at higher education institutions, introductory information about the students, staff and funding is presented. The funding statistics are based on the higher education institutions’ cost accounts. These provide information about the costs arising in the different departments and on how this expenditure is covered by various funding sources. A breakdown of costs and revenue is shown on the basis of this data. In combination with other statistics, more indicators can be obtained on the costs and student-teacher ratio per type of higher education institution.
