About: This research seminar is connected to A/Prof Raciti's 2018 National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) Research Fellowship project.

The project aims to:

  • Explore the types of perceived risks that people from low socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds associate with the decision to go to university.
  • Develop an evidence base about the role of perceived risks in participation decision making.
  • Develop and test a model of the influence of perceived risks on the decision to go to university by people from low SES backgrounds.
  • Seed new thinking and rethinking of widening participation in an era of increasing occupational uncertainty brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
