Statistical information on the output of universities and technikons is set out before the description of extensive policy development in higher education since 1995. These developments are assessed against a changing pattern of Senior Certificate passes and enrolments. The production of teachers is given special consideration, as are private higher education institutions and the higher education programmes of technical colleges. Complex conditions, including conflicting pressures on the higher education system, mean that policy implementation will stretch over a number of years.
