This issue brief focuses on how transitions within and between education systems affect access to higher education in four countries: the Netherlands, South Africa, Ukraine, and the United States. These four countries provide a diverse palette for demonstrating how issues surrounding access to higher education differ around the world. Findings reveal that increasing access to higher education depends on the history of the country and its relative stage of development, its primary and secondary education system, the demographics and various opportunities offered to pupils, the legal framework, and the policy initiatives taken.
