This collection offers an authoritative, up-to-date commentary on the challenges facing higher education today across both the UK and internationally. The book charts the impact of global economic trends and recent policy developments for students, academics, providers and changing course provision.

"This book is an engaging and ambitious book that provides both an historical and a current perspective on widening participation issues. The ambition of the book means that the reader jumps quickly through topics, from fair access to drop out, from gender to ethnicity, from England to Ghana, but this broad perspective does mean that it informs the reader on most of the major widening participation debates in recent years." - Anna Vignoles, British Journal of Educational Studies


Edited By Tamsin Hinton-Smith
