This study examines the quality of the living and learning environments, and the utilization of available facilities in the tertiary institutions in Namibia. It specifically isolated those environmental, social and institutional factors that either promote or hinder effective learning and determine the extent to which the factors provide all the students a fair opportunity to complete their courses of study. This was accomplished by interviewing the students from four tertiary institutions, namely, University of Namibia (UNAM), Polytechnic of Namibia (POLY), Windhoek College of Education (WCE) and the Institute of Higher Education (IHE), on their knowledge of where they live and learn and how relevant they consider their training to Namibia’s needs. The paper provides an overview of each of the studied institutions.
The study also provides information on the students' participation in the running of the institutions and further highlights those factors that hinder successful learning in the tertiary institutions in Namibia. The report comprises of five chapters: Chapter two contains the methodology, illustrating the choice of sample size and sampling techniques used in the study. In Chapter three, the findings from the study are developed while the fourth chapter contains the summary of the findings. Chapter five embodies the policy implications and recommendations based on the findings of the study.
