Abstract
This article investigates a group of 149 students studying social work and social administration at Makerere University, Uganda, and explores differences according to gender, sponsorship, geographical and socio-economic background, and parents’ educational level. Data used derive from a questionnaire collected in spring 2014. Results show that male students have access to public sponsorship to a greater degree than female students, regardless of their background. Female students are more dependent upon private sponsorship and their parents’ educational level for entry to higher education.
