In some countries it is now the leading means by which they do so, accounting for a larger share of new entrants to the labour market than any other education or training pathway. In OECD countries, nearly one third of adults between the ages of 25 and 34 hold a tertiary qualification. In the Republic of Korea, about one-half do (OECD, 2007a).
