Spending per student

This is the amount spent per student per year on education institutions in subsidised education. This does not include spending on education in private institutions. It includes spending by government, companies, households and organisations outside the Netherlands. In higher education, the calculation of spending per student does not include spending on research: in this way only costs of actual education in the various sectors can be compared with each other. Part-time students are converted to full-time students on the basis of the time spent on education.
