Access to Higher Education and Social Inequalities (full text in Greek)

Evgenia Petropoulou


The main purpose of this study is the analysis of the data about students admitted to courses requiring lower grades and courses requiring higher grades at the University of Patras by School. The study will evaluate the entrance grades achieved by students accepted on a course, from the highest to the lowest grade, taking into account their gender, the level of their parents’ education, their parent’s occupation, and the geographical origin of the students. Moreover, a link will be drawn between the father's occupation and the secondary school the student graduated from (private or public school).
