Resumé

This paper demonstrates the persistence of social selectivity throughout the educational ladder, with evident social reproduction at the top. By jointly modelling multiple choices of high school, university, field of study, and institutional rank of university using a multinomial transition model, we are capable of quantifying the nature of horizontal stratification in accessing university education while controlling for vertical stratification. The results of our analysis confirm that students at the upper levels of educational attendance are increasingly homogeneous, even when comparing students at elite universities to their peers within the same field in non-elite institutions. Within the health sciences, demonstrating the strongest indication of stratification, we find clear evidence of social selectivity at elite institutions. The strength of additional selectivity with each new stage, however, is decreasing in magnitude with an increasing relative importance of higher education, professional employment and the income of parents.
