In this thesis we study the effect of changes in the economic, demographic and social environment on an individual's decision to invest in tertiary education. These changes include adjustments to the system of educational loans, an increase in longevity, the introduction of subsidies on professional child care and a drop in marriage rates. We also consider how the education decision interacts with various other choices that a person makes over the course of his or her life, such as labour market participation and fertility.
