With higher education facing growing demand, severe budget limitations, and rising costs globally, countries are developing different means of increasing funding resources. This book examines the policies of financing higher education in Egypt, looking at the elite programs that use English or French as the language of instruction. The distinctiveness of these programs, as a policy of financing higher education, lies in the implementation of “private” units within public universities that charge high tuition to some students even though tuition is prohibited by the constitution. This book offers the first empirical examination of the impact of high tuition fees charged in the Foreign Language Instructed Programs (FLIP) on generating non-governmental resources, increasing student satisfaction, and maintaining equitable access. The author also investigates the forms of cost sharing policies applied in Egyptian universities. This work is especially timely in light of heightened attention to the innovations of financing higher education. The analysis sheds light on a unique policy, and should be useful to policy makers and scholars interested in higher education finance and policy.
