  • The purpose of this thesis is to examine the link between public spending on university education of the different Autonomous Communities (ACs) in Spain and the university completion rates, expecting that the higher the amount of public funding on university education, the higher the completion rate in a given AC. This paper describes the role that autonomy plays in the set up of each AC's university education systems, as well as their systems of publicly funding university education. Because public funding of tertiary education is the responsibility of each region, there are many approaches to public funding. Due to the autonomy granted to the Spanish Communities and the diverse economic conditions these communities experience, the methods of publicly financing university education varies from region to region, displaying diversity in the completion rates of university students in the ACs.
