Essentials of cross border
                  education
Synonymous     with   transnational   and/or   borderless
education

Wide range of educational activities: international
academic     linkages,     development/aid projects or
commercial trade initiatives

Characterized by: movement across national borders      of
students and teachers, institutions with a wide range   of
curricula and programmes and a variety of modes         of
delivery

Students follow a course or programme of study produced
and delivered in a country different from the one in which
they are residing
Stakeholders in higher
              education
Government
Higher education institutions
Student bodies
Quality assurance and accreditation
bodies
Academic recognition bodies
Professional bodies
Two main approaches in
                CBE
Collaboration and partnership
– Countries, through their higher education
  agencies collaborate with each other in
  order to promote cooperation
Competition and commercialization
– Higher education: a trade commodity that
  should respond to market forces of supply
  and demand.
Opportunities for CBE in
           the EA context
1970’s, collapse of the East African
Community, ended cooperation in transport,
posts and telecommunications.
Inter – University Council for East Africa
continued to function, sustained by
Universities.
Re - establishing the EAC: Treaty of the East
African Community (TEAC) 1999
DRC

        TZ

                    USA




                                    K




KENYA
                   TOGO   NIGERIA
Treaty of E.A.C. Highlights
Develop policies and programs for cooperation in
political, economic, social and cultural fields,
research and technology
Cooperation in education and training
Coordination of human resource policies and
programs
Strengthen existing and establish new research
and training institutes and centers of excellence
Cooperate in industrial training
Develop programs to have well trained personnel in
all sectors relevant to the aims of the Community
Harmonize curricula, examination
certification and accreditation of education
and training institutes
Encourage and support
>Student and teacher mobility
>Exchange of information and experience
>Participation of private sector in the dev
of human resources through education
and training
Responses to market opportunities

Upsurge of private universities
Liberalization of education policies to
accommodate the inevitable global trend of
cross-border education
Individual states in East Africa do not have
enough tertiary institutions, or vacancies in
the already existing institutions and also
staff to meet the domestic demand for
higher education.

The role and importance of CBE in East
Africa lies in the need to produce a highly
skilled human workforce that will contribute
to the development of this region.
CBHE: Benefits in EA
More opportunities for
candidates to access
CBHE
E.g. USIU Nairobi
enrolled students
from 40 nationalities
(2008)
CBHE: Benefits in EA
More access to specific
knowledge/skill-based education and
training

Creates more socio – economic,
cultural and political alliances
CBHE: Benefits in EA
Important tool for promoting
professional diversity within East Africa
Enhances collaboration and mutual
trust among academics and
researchers
Retains foreign exchange within the
region
Status of CBHE in EA

– High level of interaction not
  much integration
– HE Institutions are still in
  competition for students
– Market driven programmes
  main factor in student
  enrolment
Status of CBHE in EA
Different universities are at different levels of
cross-border education e.g. 2007/8
USIU recorded 11.4% CBS of 4200 total
CUEA recorded 7.2% CBS of 5438 total
Challenges faced in the
         provision of CBHE in EA
Diversity in the system of education, KE 8-4-4; TZ
and UG 7-4-2-3
Accessibility and Affordability

Diversity in the currencies of the East African
countries

Evaluation of credentials of CBS

Lack of harmonized means of accreditation
Challenges faced in the
       provision of CBHE in EA
Courses with high market demand at
the cost of less popular courses crucial
for social-economic and political
development

Providers of cross-border higher
education have diverse cultural values
Proposed approach for
provision of CBHE in EA

              Accessibility




             Collaboration

  Affordability
                          Stakeholders
Way Forward
More collaboration for     Strengthen IUCEA
universities in the
region.
                           Pay more attention to
                           promoting quality in
Dev of necessary           CBHE
framework to participate
effectively in the
                           Strategic plan to
provision of CBHE
                           coordinate efforts for
                           mutual benefit
Conclusions

CBHE in EA, has to some extent, taken
the collaboration and partnership
approach

Full integration of this approach has yet
to take root
Thank you!!

Challenges faced in the provision of cross- border Higher Education in East Africa 5. Important issues of concern to stakeholders 6. Way Forward 7. Conclusions
  • 4. Essentials of cross border education Synonymous with transnational and/or borderless education Wide range of educational activities: international academic linkages, development/aid projects or commercial trade initiatives Characterized by: movement across national borders of students and teachers, institutions with a wide range of curricula and programmes and a variety of modes of delivery Students follow a course or programme of study produced and delivered in a country different from the one in which they are residing
  • 5. Stakeholders in higher education Government Higher education institutions Student bodies Quality assurance and accreditation bodies Academic recognition bodies Professional bodies
  • 6. Two main approaches in CBE Collaboration and partnership – Countries, through their higher education agencies collaborate with each other in order to promote cooperation Competition and commercialization – Higher education: a trade commodity that should respond to market forces of supply and demand.
  • 7. Opportunities for CBE in the EA context 1970’s, collapse of the East African Community, ended cooperation in transport, posts and telecommunications. Inter – University Council for East Africa continued to function, sustained by Universities. Re - establishing the EAC: Treaty of the East African Community (TEAC) 1999
  • 8. DRC TZ USA K KENYA TOGO NIGERIA
  • 9. Treaty of E.A.C. Highlights Develop policies and programs for cooperation in political, economic, social and cultural fields, research and technology Cooperation in education and training Coordination of human resource policies and programs Strengthen existing and establish new research and training institutes and centers of excellence Cooperate in industrial training Develop programs to have well trained personnel in all sectors relevant to the aims of the Community
  • 10. Harmonize curricula, examination certification and accreditation of education and training institutes Encourage and support >Student and teacher mobility >Exchange of information and experience >Participation of private sector in the dev of human resources through education and training
  • 11. Responses to market opportunities Upsurge of private universities Liberalization of education policies to accommodate the inevitable global trend of cross-border education
  • 12. Individual states in East Africa do not have enough tertiary institutions, or vacancies in the already existing institutions and also staff to meet the domestic demand for higher education. The role and importance of CBE in East Africa lies in the need to produce a highly skilled human workforce that will contribute to the development of this region.
  • 13. CBHE: Benefits in EA More opportunities for candidates to access CBHE E.g. USIU Nairobi enrolled students from 40 nationalities (2008)
  • 14. CBHE: Benefits in EA More access to specific knowledge/skill-based education and training Creates more socio – economic, cultural and political alliances
  • 15. CBHE: Benefits in EA Important tool for promoting professional diversity within East Africa Enhances collaboration and mutual trust among academics and researchers Retains foreign exchange within the region
  • 16. Status of CBHE in EA – High level of interaction not much integration – HE Institutions are still in competition for students – Market driven programmes main factor in student enrolment
  • 17. Status of CBHE in EA Different universities are at different levels of cross-border education e.g. 2007/8 USIU recorded 11.4% CBS of 4200 total CUEA recorded 7.2% CBS of 5438 total
  • 18. Challenges faced in the provision of CBHE in EA Diversity in the system of education, KE 8-4-4; TZ and UG 7-4-2-3 Accessibility and Affordability Diversity in the currencies of the East African countries Evaluation of credentials of CBS Lack of harmonized means of accreditation
  • 19. Challenges faced in the provision of CBHE in EA Courses with high market demand at the cost of less popular courses crucial for social-economic and political development Providers of cross-border higher education have diverse cultural values
  • 20. Proposed approach for provision of CBHE in EA Accessibility Collaboration Affordability Stakeholders
  • 21. Way Forward More collaboration for Strengthen IUCEA universities in the region. Pay more attention to promoting quality in Dev of necessary CBHE framework to participate effectively in the Strategic plan to provision of CBHE coordinate efforts for mutual benefit
  • 22. Conclusions CBHE in EA, has to some extent, taken the collaboration and partnership approach Full integration of this approach has yet to take root
