Northern Adelaide is an area where 50% of new jobs will require a university degree, but where participation in higher education is low. In 2007 the University of South Australia (UniSA), through its flagship northern Adelaide engagement unit, University of South Australia Northern Adelaide Partnerships (UNAP), commissioned a project to collect, collate and analyse base data relevant to tertiary education access and success rates for the northern Adelaide community. The purpose was to identify trends in access and success, and to examine comparative results between and within the local government areas. The resulting information would help focus resources on strategies to increase pathways and access to higher education for students in the northern Adelaide region, a recognised area of high socio-economic disadvantage.
