Cost sharing in higher education in Tanzania: fact or fiction?

Ishengoma, Johnson

Abstract:

In the early 1990's, Tanzania reintroduced a policy of higher educational cost-sharing, designed to shift some of the costs of higher education, previously borne almost exclusively by the government, toward parents and students as well as toward other non- governmental parties. This article reports research into the difference this policy has made at Tanzania's major public university, the University of Dar es Salaam ( UDSM ), with particular attention to the enrollment of privately sponsored ( ie. fee-paying) students and other changes discernable in university finances during the early years of this policy implementation. The report concludes that cost sharing in higher education in Tanzania is justified on the grounds of the sheer need for nongovernmental revenue for public higher education institutions because of declining government appropriations to these institutions, along with the dire need to expand access to higher education; however, its implementation has been lackadaisical.
