This study is the sequel to Phase 1 of the Student Choice Behaviour Project, From School to Higher Education? Factors Affecting the Choices of Grade 12 Learners, published in 2002. The main objective of Phase 1 was to examine learners' choices about entry into higher education institutions and fields of study. Phase 2 traces those learners who actually entered higher education and further education institutions, as well as those who repeated Grade 12, entered the labour market, or became economically inactive, and it investigates the factors that influenced them.

The study also considers the achievability of two of the key objectives of the National Plan for Higher Education: to increase the participation rate in the system; and to shift the balance of enrolments away from the Humanities and towards the study of Business and Commerce, and Science, Engineering and Technology. Like the Phase 1 report, this monograph contains crucial information for those involved in higher education planning and policy-making, at national and institutional levels.
