Locating aspirations

Evidence to support participation in higher education of low SES students from regional and remote Australia.

This project will bring insight into under-representation of regional and remote students in higher education by analysing existing data from more than 6000 school students from regional NSW and collecting additional survey, interview and focus group data from outer regional, remote and very remote areas in NSW. The project will help shape equity policy and practice to build student aspiration in regional and remote areas.

Project Lead: Professor Jenny Gore
