Improving the ‘beaten track’:

investigating alternative pathways to increase higher education participation for mature-aged low socio-economic status students in regional and remote Australia.

This consortium project by three universities will examine ways to increase access to higher education for mature-aged regional and remote students from low SES backgrounds.  The project will explore the place of pathways such as low stakes, open access tertiary preparation and enabling programs in addressing the persistent gap in participation rates of mature-aged students.
