Denmark's Eternity Students

Policy Indications

The policy of free education for college students in Denmark has led to a situation where students never finish studies even after spending six or more years in college.  Some students change courses or programs and keep on continuously learning. Since the students don't have any burden related to loans or tuition fees, they don't have any motivation to complete the course. The Government gives a grant of $1000 to cover the living expenses of students and in 2015 an amendment was passed giving universities more power to hurry students towards graduation. Students protested criticising it as an infringement on their freedoms but the government said it was required to make the university system more efficient. The reason why there is lesser interest is that graduates only earn slightly higher pay than senior secondary school leavers.
