Abstract:Between 2001 and 2011, participation rates in part-time programmes of public higher education institutions have reduced by half in the Netherlands. An effective policy is needed to avoid harm to the knowledge economy. The Dutch government has proposed four scenario’s with the aim to increase participation rates in accredited part-time higher education. However, information is missing on the successfulness of each scenario. This study tries to fill this gap in knowledge by answering the following research question: How successful will each of the four scenarios, proposed by the Dutch government, be in increasing participation rates in part-time higher education? An ex-ante evaluation will be conducted in order to determine which scenario will be the most successful in increasing participation rates. The four scenarios will be assessed on their ability to decrease barriers that inhibit adults from taking part in part-time higher education. To conclude, the enforcement of Demand-driven-funding in part-time higher education is be presented as expected to be the most successful in increasing participation rates.
