Social Inequality at German Universities

Studies of social inequality in tertiary education either lack comprehensive explanations of how social origin specifically effects educational outcomes or they are based on small samples, often focusing on lower class students. To improve understanding of the specific mechanisms leading to social inequality with regard to academic performance, comprehensive quantitative data needs to be collected and analysed. The central question is, whether findings from qualitative studies about the specific mechanisms of social inequality in the course of university studies can be verified with quantitative data. That is why quantitative indicators for potential mechanisms will be developed and applied in an online questionnaire in the course of my dissertation project.
