Who Seeks Access To What, When and Why?
Who Seeks Access To What, When and Why? Interrogating the Pivotal Role of Student Aspirations in Higher Education Participation (HEPPP, 2015)
This project addressed low SES student underrepresentation in higher education, particularly in high-status degrees. Data from surveys and focus groups were mapped to indicate the specific occupational interests and educational aspirations of school students from Years 3–12 to inform targeted university outreach activities. A robust evidence base was generated, applicable to outreach activities across all Australian universities.
