Abstract

This chapter focuses on learner aspirations for higher education and on student enrolments within higher education, juxtaposing the two to show the inherent volatility of the youth-to-adulthood transition as young people move from one phase of school to the next and from school into and through the higher education system. The progression of students from all seven institutions involved in the student retention and graduadte destination study forms the subject of the investigation.
