oa Mosenodi - One more time: how do you finance higher education?

Volume 3, Issue 1-2
  • ISSN : 1021-559X



The financing of higher education is a major problem in Africa. In this paper, we examine the financing of University Education in Botswana in the context of the report of the second National Commission on Education. The proposals on cost sharing and cost efficiency are explored and suggestions are offered on how the Grant/Loan Scheme should be modified to achieve greater equity and efficiency in the system. Finally, recommendations are made on how the University of Botswana might adopt a more organisationally responsive approach to self-funding and thus reduce its high level of dependence on Government subvention.
