I am co-investigator on a new Nuffield Foundation funded project: ‘First in family’: higher education choices and labour market outcomes. This project aims to assess the ‘first in family’ measure used by many universities to identify students as part of their approach to widening participation in university access. First in family refers to students who attend university and obtain a degree, but whose parents did not.
