This paper seeks to provide an overview of higher education participation in
Northern Ireland. The aims are to set out quantitatively, the main dimensions of
participation located within a comparative United Kingdom (UK) context, to identify
the main social characteristics of participation, to draw upon qualitative research
evidence to contextualise the patterns identified and to briefly discuss the relevant
public policies. The paper draws upon a range of official statistical sources and the
findings from research conducted in the past twenty years in Northern Ireland. - [Introduction]
