Improving transfer from vocational to higher education: lessons from abroad
MetadataShow full item record
This paper considers whether the vertical stratification of universities in Scotland and Australia is steeper than in other countries.

The paper tests that supposition by examining the rate at which students transfer from short cycle awards of non university tertiary institutions into highly selective and moderately selective universities
