Mobility and Hierarchy in the Age of Near-Universal Access
Parry, Gareth
Critical Studies in Education, v52 n2 p135-149 2011
With the shift toward near-universal access, the movement of students within and between systems of higher education has assumed a new importance, especially for policies aimed at widening participation and social equity. Globalization has given rise to increasing levels of student mobility across national boundaries, with participation in international education and its networks serving as a potentially powerful marker of advantage. Rather less attention has been paid to the accompanying localization of higher education and the choice-making and mobility of students positioned in the lower tiers and outer reaches of distributed systems. Where the location of higher education in college and community settings is central to policies of growth and inclusion, new dimensions and complexities are brought to long-standing debates about the divisions of tertiary education.
