Private higher education in Uganda: the case of its distribution, contribution to access and costs.

Nkata, James L.

Abstract:

The paper presents the factors underpinning the emergence of private higher education, the context in which it is called to fulfill its mission, its role in development in Uganda, and the distribution and cost implications.  The driving variables of this paper are basically, private higher education costs, distribution and access.  These three are handled holistically. The basic conclusion of this paper is that Uganda’s private higher education institutions need to develop survival strategies.  These might include reducing their dependence on a sole source of funding, diversifying their funding mechanisms, turning themselves into suppliers and providers of quality relevant education, positioning themselves in strategic demographic areas, and diversifying mechanisms of access.
