University Studies - Current Research

During the 2008-2010 triennium, the members of the University Studies research line, we have been working on the R+D+I  "Students in front the new university reform" financed by the ministry of Universities and Innovation. Once the project has been finalized  and the main results have been presented, our research activity continues to be related to the university institution, the experiences and participation of university students and the implications of recent changes in the decisions of the different actors involved with the higher education institution.

The most recently results focus on the processes and decisions of access to the university, the patterns of attendance and the experience of the students in the institution and the implications in terms of social composition and educational equity.
