    • The downward trend in the number of student allowances recipients and student loan borrowers continued from 2015 to 2016. Expenditure on student allowances, at $470 million, is now 26 percent below its peak in 2011. The amount borrowed from the Student Loan Scheme increased slightly from 2015 to 2016 to $1.5 billion.
    • Total government spending on tertiary education for the year ended June 2017 increased slightly on the previous year due mainly to higher funding rates for qualifications at level 3 and above and an increase in funding for research. Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in expenditure on student allowances.
