    Where do I want to continue my studies? The further education plans of students from the best national high schools - 2015

    Only few of the Hungarian high school students intend to attend undergraduate programmes abroad, although their numbers show a growing trend in recent years. This is what IEER research examining the intentions of continuing education reveals, in addition to the fact that the Hungarian school system is unable to overcome the disadvantages caused by family background, that is, promote social mobility. Based on the 2013 National Skills Assessment the best national high schools receive only a very small proportion of students whose father has a low level of education or low labour market status. Our results also suggest that at the post-secondary level the education system reinforces existing inequalities. This can be concluded from the fact that the ratio of students who apply to the prestigious universities in Budapest is significantly lower in the lagging northern and lowland regions (even in the best high schools of these areas) than in the region of Central Hungary. The study was based on 770 responses conducted among the graduate students of thirty Hungarian public high schools, which were the best within their region according to the 2013 National Skills Assessment.

    An increasing number of Hungarian students apply to British universities

    Between 2006 and 2013 the number of Hungarian high school graduates applying to British universities increased significantly, by nearly 2.7-fold, while other Visegrad countries were characterized by much lower growth rates. Besides, the research of IEER examining the prospects for further studies also reveals that regional disparities in further education are discernible within Hungary. Children from the underdeveloped Northern and Great Plains regions usually don't apply for universities in Budapest or abroad, whereas in the region of Central Hungary students most often choose the most prestigious universities of Budapest. The study was conducted on graduating students at thirty Hungarian state high schools; the results are based on 704 responses.

    Intentions of High School Students for Higher Education

    The objective of the latest of research of IEER was to get survey-based information on the intentions of high school students for higher education and how these intentions change by various high school and student traits. The survey was carried out by a brief self-administered questionnaire at a sample of secondary schools selected on the basis of several criteria. Nevertheless the sample design could not be proportional by some important features (e.g., high schools' ranking by admission rates, geographic location, or student composition). During the selection process high schools were classified into two groups based on admission rates - elite and non-elite high schools - and in addition to high schools from Budapest, several from rural areas were included as well. On the following link an English summary of the paper can be downloaded.
