Alternative Routes to Higher Education Eligibility

 

Official statistical data shows that the interest in entering tertiary education correlates with the path (type of school) that leads to higher education eligibility. Until now it is unclear whether this effect is caused by the different school forms, as they might have an independent influence on the ability and interests of pupils. Self-selection might be another factor, as pupils and their parents are free to choose a path. Possibly, there is no interest in entering higher education to begin with and the path has no influence on this decision. To answer this important question, NEPS data will be used to track students in various paths and assess development of interests and abilities over time. It is hoped that the NEPS offers the possibility to identify causal effects for the first time, which would be highly relevant for policy makers and the development of the educational system as a whole.
