Monitoring and Evaluation

The number of public tertiary and higher education institutions in The Gambia that offer programmes at certificate, diploma and degree levels is extremely limited.  There are three main tertiary institutions that run certificate and diploma programmes, The Gambia Technical Training Institute, the Management Development Institute and The Gambia College.  Only one public higher education institution, The University of The Gambia (UTG) founded in 1999, offers programmes at degree level.

In 2012 two other private higher education institutions were established which focus their programmes primarily on Islamic and medical courses as well as social sciences.
