Abstract:Does growth in the educational system at early stages of development imply that patterns of access to elite institutions become more or less restricted and biased toward relatively high-status groups in the population? This article addresses this question through careful examination of the social background characteristics of Ghanaian university students in 1953, 1963, and 1974. Sections: Educational expansion and the changing nature of recruitment - The nature of university education in Ghana - Some socioeconomic characteristics of the broader population - The socio-economic background of Ghanaian university students - The socio-economic background of students at the University of cape Coast - Recruitment in the overall university system, 1953-74 - Conclusion.
