Research Team on Differentiation within Equalsoc Network: (Economic Change, Quality of Life and Social Cohesion), funded by the 6th Framework Network of Excellence by the European Union.
In the last decades the higher education sector has changed dramatically in most European countries both with regard to participation as well as institutional differentiation. Differentiation in higher education can be found at the different levels, i.e. at institutions, degree.levels, educational careers of individuals and labour market returns. The main aim of the project was to examine how differentiation in different countries can be sociologically and analytically characterised, and how it affects social inequalities in participation in higher
education as well as its effects on social stratification.
