Pursuing Educational Ambitions? Higher Education Enrolment and the Choice of Study Programmes among Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Youth in Norway
Storen, Liv Anne
Irish Educational Studies, v30 n2 p159-177 2011
This article focuses on differences in higher education (HE) enrolment and choice of study according to students' background, specifically amongst first- or second-generation immigrants to Norway. A special emphasis is placed on the choice of prestigious study programmes. The results indicate that students with an immigrant background tend to make more ambitious choices than ethnic Norwegians, irrespective of their parents' education level. (Contains 4 tables, 2 figures, and 8 notes.)
