Scientific Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Sociology - Knowledge and Information, , language: English, abstract: Globalization and privatization drive have recently brought many investors into the education sector in Africa.

To achieve this, a descriptive correlation approach and a cross-sectional sampling design are adopted. Purposive and stratified sampling techniques are used in sample selection.

Using self administered questionnaires and interviews, data is collected from respondents in three different colleges/schools from four Universities in Uganda. Using Pearson's correlation coefficient to analyze the relation between costs and benefits and tuition fee differentiation system, the study finds tuition fee differentiation system to have a significant correlation with benefits accrued and an insignificant correlation with costs involved.
