Higher education is critical in the development of any nation. This explains the reason for the guest for it in the developing nations of the world. The evidence is seen in most Africa countries as universities, and other tertiary institutions are on the increase every day. However, the quality of these institutions has been concerns for stakeholders in education because myriad of challenges are facing the institutions. Many challenges are confronting higher education in these institutions such as inadequate funding, poor infrastructure, governance, culture, religion and others: which are impacting the quality of teaching and research. It is therefore apparent that the quality of higher education in the developing countries, especially Africa is not comparable with most of the developed world which sometimes bring unhealthy discrimination in term of appointment and placement.
The postgraduate studies and research in most universities cannot be compared with those of the developed countries. This is evidence from the quality of the postgraduate students produced in these institutions. The academic personnel in most of these institutions are not technology savvy, and this is significantly affecting their teaching. Students’ thesis supervisions are poorly handled in most of the African Universities, and it makes doctoral programme herculean.
Given this, the need to examine the quality of higher education is therefore critical to holistically proffer solution to these problems. Therefore, the purpose of this special issue is to seek for both empirical and theoretical papers to address the quality of higher education that will guarantee sustainable development in each of the countries.
