Marked contrasts exist in the participation of young people from different birthplace groups in higher education in Australia. A 1993 survey of year 11 school students shows that these contrasts are preceded by differing attitudes to education. Students from a number of Asian birthplace groups are more likely to aspire to university education, and to place a high value on academic development, than students born in Australia, parts of Europe, Britain, Ireland and New Zealand.
