Abstract: We focus on analysing public funding of higher education, focusing on direct expenditure on higher education institutions, and on trends and numbers of enrolled full-time students as well as full-time graduates. The aim of the paper is to give an overview of the current funding numbers and provide insight on the funding indicators in the post crisis period in Slovenia. We used publicly available data from the website of Ministry of Education, Science and Sport on higher education funding in the period 2010-2018. Our analysis reveals that public funding of higher education institutions on study activities has finally reached the amount spend in the pre-crisis period and is slowly rising. Student enrolments are still dropping while the numbers of higher education graduates are slowly increasing, with an exception in 2016 when the graduation from pre-Bologna study programmes was still possible.
