Abstract

Higher education (HE) participation is increasingly pervasive across the United Kingdom. Participation rates are at about 43 per cent of young people entering HE. Much of the debate over the last 10 years has focused on widening participation (WP) for young people from lower socio-economic groups, but, more recently, a debate has opened up, which focuses on how socially mobile our society is (Milburn, 2009; Clegg, 2011), and HE is seen to be a key component of creating upward social mobility.
