Higher Education Funding and Access
£149,660, Nuffield Foundation Higher Education Funding and Access Exploring Common Beliefs The project, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, aims to inform the public policy debate on higher education funding and access. The research team are analysing several datasets to help shed light on the drivers of the socio-economic gap in higher education participation, as well as key features of the university experience. Specifically, the project focuses on exploring these seven commonly held beliefs: 1. 'Many talented 18 year olds from poorer backgrounds are not going to university' 2. 'Young people from poor backgrounds do not aspire to go to university' 3. 'Qualified 18 year olds from poorer backgrounds do not apply to university - and if they do, they face discrimination' 4. 'Tuition fees prevent students from poorer backgrounds from going to university' 5. 'Poorer children do badly at university' 6. 'University is for full-time students' 7. 'All degrees are worth the same'
