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.
