LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Since the second half of the 20th century, some 'change forces' have caused the transformation of society,many of its institutionalized services, and the global socioeconomic interactions.One of these institutions has been higher education. Higher education has under gone changes in governance, enrollment, funding,new style of competition, quality, and missions. The new scenario has raised new concerns about the importance of tertiary education in the enhancement of the socio-economic, political and cultural status of both individuals and societies. These developments coupled with the so-called globalization have necessitated mass enrollment in higher education, where governments were unable or unwilling to fund higher education as before.The overall development finally gave way to the introduction of higher education cost sharing. This book is merely focusing on the experiences of developing countries in implementing the policy of cost sharing in higher education funding.
