Tuition-free countries at college and university level often have fewer graduates

Many politicians around the world when campaigning for elective office have at times promised to introduce tuition-free at public colleges and universities. Once such politician in the recent times is Elizabeth Warren of United States of America (USA).

Now research shows that having tuition-free colleges and universities are not a guarantee that graduation rates will shoot up. Indeed, research findings have clearly shown that countries with either free or ultra-low tuition rates have fewer college graduates as compared to those countries with expensive college costs.

Evidence shows that where tuition-free policy is implemented, fewer and fewer people get access to higher education.

Germany and France are among the large countries with an excess of ten (10) million people to qualify as tuition-free nations. Elsewhere, in order to study in Canada, Japan, Britain and Australia you will be required to spend plenty of money also called Out-Of-Pocket Payments.

In light of these observations, research has further shown that free education in France and Germany has not helped improved the situation considering that free-education in the two countries has not significantly improved the incidence in regards to college completion. The two countries are lagging behind those nations where higher tuition fees are paid.
