Engineering Access to Higher Education Through Higher Education Fairs

Chapter
Part of the Higher Education Research in the 21st Century Series book series (CHER)

Abstract

In 2013, 577,220 secondary school students obtained their baccalaureate in France and most of them continued their studies in higher education. If we add together all those students who apply to institutions of higher education each year after some work experience and those already in higher education (2,387,000 in 2012), it seems relevant to consider transition to higher education as a major social process.
