Higher Education

We conduct research on a range of topics in this area. Particular interests include progression to postgraduate study, the effectiveness of initiatives to widen participation in higher education and inequalities of social class, gender and race/ethnicity at tertiary level. Our research takes in higher education policy in relevant areas, such as student funding and research impact, typically adopting a comparative approach.
