Abstract

This report uses Futuretrack data to examine the situation of final year students on three year undergraduate courses who had applied to enter higher education in 2005-6. The report focuses on students from Northern Ireland studying at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Northern Ireland, students from Northern Ireland studying at HEIs in Great Britain and students from Great Britain studying in Northern Ireland. It looks particularly at the experiences of students studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects and those from different socio-economic backgrounds. The overall picture presented in this report of final year Northern Ireland students studying on three year undergraduate programmes is one of a group who are largely risk averse and cautious in their higher education choices and career aspirations.
