Open University Admission Policies and Drop Out Rates in Europe

Veruska Oppedisano ()

No 200944, Working Papers from Geary Institute, University College Dublin

Abstract: The paper develops a model of educational choices with uncertainty to account for the high drop out rate in countries with open admission policies at university entry. As long as university entry reveals useful information, students have incentives to enroll, update their beliefs and choose whether to continue university or drop out.
