It is generally held that the educational programmes of any higher educational institution, i.e. what is taught and how it is taught, are determined by those in the educational institutions. In this paper the notion of autonomy is examined and a distinction is made between “subjective” and “objective” notions of academic freedom. A sample of academics in professional schools in a university and a college of advanced education was interviewed and their perceptions of their autonomy are discussed.
