Abstract

Although, for decades, a high number of students in Germany have completed vocational education and training before starting university, higher education research has hardly considered vocationally pre-qualified students in a differentiated way. Against this background, this paper aims to paint a more detailed picture of higher education graduates with previous vocational education and training. Specifically, we will answer two questions: What distinguishes these graduates from others without previous vocational training? Moreover, how diverse is this group in itself? In addition to conducting an exploratory, descriptive comparison of various characteristics, including personality traits, this article uses a machine learning approach. ...

Abstract

Educational and employment careers do not always follow a straight line, as the nine chapters of this volume demonstrate. The chapters cover various topics related to access to higher education and transition to the labour market. They address the direct and indirect pathways to higher education, the potential complexity of the decision-making involved, and possible returns to the multiple educational pathways. The variety of educational trajectories, the focus of the volume, has gained importance in empirical educational research, not least because there are now rich longitudinal data sets such as the DZHW Panel Study of School Leavers or the National Education Panel (NEPS). Only by monitoring individuals over an extended period ...

Abstract

Individual educational and life paths are far more diverse today than is often assumed. Many paths with and without a university entrance qualification lead to higher education at different points in time. Diversity persists in higher education and beyond. Students have different backgrounds, change their course of study, interrupt their studies, or drop out. The current findings in this anthology impressively explore this diversity, from the paths to a degree program to the labor market.
