The diversity of the student populations in higher education gains relevance in admission procedures and quality assurance in higher education. Likewise, issues of trajectories and success rates of non-traditional students in higher education have been an issue in higher education research of different disciplines for a long time.
This lecture will give an introduction to concepts, terms and measures of biographical diversity and link these with the specific institutional conditions in different higher education systems.
Besides a more general overview, the case of Germany will be discussed and the different “non-linear” pathways into higher education will be connected with theoretical and empirical questions of individual life courses and study conditions.
