Dr Predrag Lažetić is a Prize Fellow at the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath (since October 2018) with the designated research theme of widening participation in higher education. His particular interests are in the field of labour market outcomes of higher education graduates and socio-economic determinants of participation in specific study programmes and levels of education. Previously he work as a research fellow at the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey within European Research Council funded project Eurostudents. In his research at the University of Surrey, Predrag investigated how university staff and university websites construct and understand higher education students in six European countries. He also conduced numerous interviews with academic staff and focus groups with students. His doctoral project addressed the broad evaluation of quality of graduate jobs in Europe based on REFLEX graduate survey data focusing on differences in various sectors of employments and the influence of digital technologies and globalisation exposure on graduate job quality. In his previous work as the Director of the Centre for Education Policy in Belgrade he conduced numerous projects for various governments and international governmental organisations (World Bank, UNICEF, and European Commission) aimed at evaluation, monitoring and development of education policy in Serbia and other countries of Western Balkans.  Prior to the work in Belgrade, he worked for 2 years at the International Centre for Higher Education Research in Kassel, Germany (INCHER Kassel) within the project which evaluated impact of the Bologna Process on higher education systems in Europe (commissioned by the European Commission and the Bologna Follow Up Group).
