520    This book explores higher education, social class and 
       social mobility from the point of view of those most 
       intimately involved: the undergraduate students. It is 
       based on a project which followed a cohort of young 
       undergraduate students at Bristol's two universities in 
       the UK through from their first year of study for the 
       following three years, when most of them were about to 
       enter the labour market or further study. The students 
       were paired by university, by subject of study and by 
       class background, so that the fortunes of middle-class and
       working-class students could be compared. Narrative data 
       gathered over three years are located in the context of a 
       hierarchical and stratified higher education system, in 
       order to consider the potential of higher education as a 
       vehicle of social mobility. Jessie Abrahams is a PhD 
       student in the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff
