"You actually don't notice you come from the mbo at all"
In the Netherlands, stigmatization of mbo-educated people is prevelant. There are, for example, exclusive dating apps and insurances for ‘highly’ educated citizens only. It is however unclear if and how education-based intergroup bias influences ‘stackers’. These students have ‘stacked’ educational levels after graduation from mbo to university.
For her research, Michelle conducted interviews with 15 stackers currently attending Radboud University. In this lecture, Michelle will present participants’ experiences with differential treatment and its perceived influences.
The lecture will be conducted in Dutch and is open to all students and staff from Radboud University. Registration is not required.
