The aim of this study is to investigate the achievement of the aims of “equality of educational opportunities” and “efficiency” in higher education policies in Greece, from the early 1980s up to the late 2000s. More specifically, the problematic of this study focuses on the binary system of higher education and the social background of the graduates of two different types of higher education, namely universities and Technological Educational Institutions (TEIs), in order to examine the degree of the achievement of the goal of equality of educational opportunities. Moreover, this study investigates the transition to the labour market of the graduates of universities and TEIs, as this constitutes an aspect of the efficiency of higher education. The main questions of this study are: • What is the social background of the graduates of universities and TEIs? • What is the relationship between University and TEI graduates, with reference to their access to the labour market, in the years 2001 and 2010? • What is the role of the academisation of the TEIs in the integration of their graduates into employment? The main conclusions of this study are that the social background of graduates is an important factor for their studying in the university or the technological sector of higher education, while at the same time, university graduates are widely preferred in the labour market, compared to the graduates of TEIs, despite the phenomenon of the academic drift. Keywords: Higher education, University, Technological Educational Institution, social background, employment, unemployment.
