Additional Information: This paper is based upon a close analysis of interviews with a sub-sample of students from London-based, ESRC funded study of Higher Education (HE) choice. This sub-sample consists of 65 Minority Ethnic ('minority') students, including 16 Jewish students, 35 female and 30 male, from the total of 120 who were interviewed in the study. The backgrounds, identities and class positions of the minority students are very diverse. The paper develops a class-based model of 'ethnic-choosing' which idnetifies two ideal-type choosers "contingent' and 'embedded' to make sense of the complex decision-making processes of minority-ethnic students and their families when contemplating Higher Education
