Abstract

Access to post-secondary education is a significant social and economic concern globally. It links with what continues to be one of the dominant themes of the early twenty-first century:inequality at national, regional and global levels. There is a constant flow of evidence pointing to widening gaps between those in different social groups, and while relative differences in income and wealth underpin these differences, they intersect with ethnic or religious identities (OECD,2014; Piketty, 2014). In 2015, the World Economic Forum surveyed over 1,500 leaders across all continents from business, academia, government and international organisations and described inequality as the biggest challenge facing the world today (World Economic Forum, 2015).
