Research topic: Open to all, accessible by few: A multilevel modelling and secondary data analysis of access barriers to Higher Education in Nigeria and the role of parental perceptions of Higher Education

My research seeks to identify the barriers at different organisational levels that affect access to higher education (HE) in Nigeria and the additional role that parental perception of education plays. I intend to answer my research questions by conducting a programme of original item response theory, multilevel, and structural equation modelling analyses of complex clustered secondary data on two cohorts of individuals, households and communities data as it relates to access to Higher Education in Nigeria.
