CHALLENGES FOR SUCCESS
  • Low student success rates
  • Low student throughput rates
  • Higher staff student ratios
  • Lower research productivity
  • Inadequate academic infrastructure
    laboratories, lecture theatres, libraries
  • Inadequate capacity of student residences
  • Increased demand for financial aid

Higher Education Planning
  • In 2006, the Ministry concluded the student
    enrolment and output planning process for the

  • The planning parameters included
  • The HE system must contribute to national HRD and
    research priorities.
  • Attention must be paid to the need to increase
    the enrolment and graduate output of scarce and
    critical skills.
  • Enrolments must be matched to available
    resources, physical, human and financial.
  • Institutions must focus on improving graduation
    and success rates.
  • A differentiated approach to enrolment planning
    must be adopted.
