  • political initiatives for inclusion and wider access to higher education;
  • expanding markets and increased international competition;
  • the mobilization of skilled labour
  • regional integration and globalization processes that provide scope for professional mobility and greater potential for cross-border movement of goods, services, capital and persons;
  • the consequent growing demand for relevant continuing education and training, or what is known as lifelong learning;
  • diversification of higher education providers; and
  • The continuous development of information and communication technologies heralding new approaches to education delivery.
