If one looks around the world, the region perhaps least served by relevant research literature and analysis of higher education is Sub-Saharan Africa. Funding Higher Education in Sub-Saharan Africa addresses this gap. Drawing on in-depth, evidence-based research from nine countries including Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, this volume sets out a comprehensive analysis of financing patterns currently being adopted by institutions across Eastern and Southern Africa to help accommodate the rapidly growing number of enrolments and massification of education. This book makes an impressive contribution to two key areas of Africa's higher education development: a better understanding of patterns of funding and the need to improve deeper research on African higher education.
