  • ISSN : 1011-3487



The purpose of this article is to cast some light on the nature, the essence and the functioning of the transformation process, as viewed from the higher education perspective. This is realised, firstly, by a study of the semantic value of the term transformation, as interpreted against the background of related terminology, which is followed by a discussion of the complexities involved in the carrying out of the process of higher education. Thirdly, various factors that form the basis of a successful transformation process are highlighted. The discussion is guided throughout by the actual process of the provision of higher education.
