Hide / Show Abstract

The South African Higher Education Funding Framework uses funding as a lever to achieve equitable student access, quality teaching and research, and improved student retention and success. Maximising a university subsidy from the national Department of Education necessitates innovative strategies at the pre- and post-student admission stages. This paper describes how the resource base of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of KwaZulu-Natal was increased by the Academic Development and Student Support project which enabled the Faculty to meet enrolment targets and increase graduation rates.
