Inadequate public funding means that governments in developing countries are continually working to find ways of expansion to meet the growth demand for higher education.; This book considers the effectiveness of government funding methods in developing quality and efficiency in higher education systems in developing countries, and looks at policy measures taken to widen the funding base including raising tuition fees, student loan programmes, graduate taxes, industry-education links and national service programmes.; Taking information from around the world and drawing on successful practice in developed countries, this volume should be of interest to specialists and researchers in education economics and economic development, academics in general education and those involved in the finance and administration of higher education.
