In whose interests? Access, participation and progression in a context of changing configurations of HE

Tuesday, 23 May 2017

This seminar focuses on changing patterns and experience of access, participation and progression in HE. The contributions offer a range of different ways of understanding the changing landscape. They address not just traditional full-time university participation, but college-based HE, as well as part-time, local and adult provision. Diverse methodological approaches and data are used to consider who benefits, and who does not, from current and evolving forms of HE provision.  

Presenters and session titles:
