Compiled from a study done on 2013 and 2014 figures, the booklet seen by Xinhua Wednesday said that there were 27, 558 women enrolled in 2014 compared to 15,283 men.

Figures used in the year book were provided by four colleges — the University of Namibia, the Namibia University of Science and Technology, the Institute of Open Learning, and Monitronic Success College.


In 2013, the year book said 25,379 women were enrolled, while 15,867 men took up studies.

This, according to the year book, is not the same regarding foreign students enrolled in Namibian institutions of higher learning.

In 2014 for example, there were 1,769 men and 1,609 women, while in 2013, there were 1,666 were men and 1,462 women.

Higher education deputy minister Becky Ndjoze-Ojo said that graduate surveys should not only inform institutions’ strategic plans, but also guide policy makers, planners, parents and students in their decision making processes. Enditem
