It has been argued that higher education is associated with cosmopolitan attitudes. This theory is tested in relation to Australians' attitudes to the questions of tariff protection, defence and ethnic pluralism. All of these questions draw on the concept of national borders. The results indicate that people with university education are significantly more supportive of breaking down barriers formed by national borders than are those with less education. Copyright.
