University aspirations 2018

Date: 16.08.2018

On behalf of the Sutton Trust, Ipsos MORI surveyed 2,381 young people aged 11-16 across England and Wales on their attitudes towards higher education. The Trust has monitored this trend since 2003 as an indicator of young people’s expectations before they do their GCSEs.

This year’s poll shows a falling proportion of young people who think university is important to get on in life and shows how university aspirations continue to differ among young people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
