Inequalities of access to university: analysis and inventory in FWB

National Funds of scientific research - Funds of basic and collective research: in partnership with UCL (University of Louvain la Neuve) and ULB (University of Brussels), 2007-2010.

This inter-university research conducted in partnership with UCL (University of Louvain-la-Neuve) and ULB (University of Brussels) was an empirical research about access-to-higher education inequalities. It included 3 phases: the purpose of the first phase was to document the access-to-university inequalities in FWB according to some student’s characteristics such as his/her socio-cultural background, gender or previous school career. The 2d purpose was to better understand the socially situated characteristic of the students’ representations at the end of secondary education concerning higher education and the influence of such representations on enrollment at university. Finally the 3d phase consisted in analyzing, on the basis of international comparisons, the situation of FWB and the factors associated to inequalities of access to higher education.
