A Study of Students’ Attitudes towards Socio-Cultural and Individual-Familial Consequences of the Increased Number of Female Applicants Admitted to Higher Education

By Mohammadjavad Liaghatdar and Marzieh Norouzi Larki


The aim of this study was to explore the socio-cultural as well as individual-familial consequences of the increased number of female applicants admitted to higher education. The research method was descriptive and evaluative in nature with the statistical population composed of the students from Shahid Beheshti Tehran, Allameh Tabatabaei Tehran, Bouali Sina Hamedan and Shahid Chamran Ahvaz universities, of whom 403 were selected as sample size by stratified sampling, proportionate to the population size. The tool for data collection was a researcher-developed questionnaire and reliability was estimated using Chronbach’s Alpha. The data obtained from the research were analyzed both descriptively and inferentially using SPSS and other documentation. The results indicated that in the students’ views, the socio-cultural as well as individual-familial consequences of increased number of female applicants admitted to higher education was above average and significant at 0.05 level. The mean socio-cultural consequences were greater than that of the individual-familial consequences. A study of demographic variables indicated that compared to male students, female students placed greater emphasis on the socio-cultural consequences of the increased number of applicants admitted to higher education. As for other demographic variables (department, academic level, semester, father’s education, mother’s education, marital status, employment status), there was no significant difference
