This paper investigates input substitutability in English higher education and compares merging and non-merging institutions. A stochastic frontier translog output distance function is estimated using a thirteen-year panel of data for all institutions in England. Some differences between merging and non-merging institutions in labour and capital substitutability are revealed, and administrative input becomes an abundant resource for merged institutions. Policy implications are discussed.
