Paired Peers is three-year qualitative longitudinal project following a cohort of students drawn from two universities in the same English city, the University of Bristol (UoB) and the University of the West of England (UWE), through three years of their undergraduate degree (2010-2013. The overall aims of the project were to discover:
1. How the experiences of students were differentiated by class
2. What kind of capitals students brought into university with them (economic, social and cultural) and what capitals they acquired during their university years
3. In this way, to begin to explore in what ways university might promote, or not promote, social mobility.
