The project study is well-researched for academic purposes and are usually provided in complete chapters with adequate References.
This project examined the reform outcome of factors that influence students demand for higher education in Abeokuta Metropolis Area of Ogun State. Under the metropolis and out of four institution only one was used as sampled by simple random to achieve this objective F.C.E Abeokuta and five schools were selected. The result clear that Education seen as a ladder with its terminus at university hence for a complete circle. Student were motivated by economic benefit drive, parents vocational or educational background, positive parental influence, the forces of the society, moreover, course preferences were biased on relevance of such courses to the profession in view as well as its availability institution of higher learning. Besides, it was quite obvious that student have bias for university education despite other higher education qualification obtained, which gives a sign of some balance in students or society orientation to other higher institution of learning.
The result of research shows that, government allocates financial support annually for students influence in the bodies of higher education.
Governments spending priorities and affordability to the principle, there should be maximum participation in initial higher education by young and mature students.

Summary, Recommendation and Conclusion
The word “education” is derived from Latin word education, which means to know or learn inquiry.
Education is the process by which society deliberately transmits it accumulated knowledge skill and values from one generation to another.
The director of education Mr. ER. J Hussey 1996 seen education as the process of acculturation through which the individual is helped to attain the development of his potentialities and their maximum actualities when necessary.
N.P.E (2004) defined education as the process that helps to develop the whole man and enable him to discover his potentials towards achieving self goals.
UNESCO (2009) gives the following definition education as largest sense is any act or experience that has a formulate effect on the mind, character or physical ability of individual.
In 1971 Adeyinka said some form of tertiary education at some stage in the life cycle and not necessarily and to secondary education, in a wide variety of structures, form and types of delivery undertaken an equal term either part-time or full- time publicly subsidized but with shared client contribution, closely involving partner in the community: serving multiple purpose education social, cultural and economic.
In Nigeria we suggest that in the long term, other nation will increase their investment in higher education to sustain their economics.
There are some emerging m economic evidence to support such as approach.
Firstly the countries which are technology capabilities gain a long term advantage over increasingly that education is positively associated to be most relevant education variable in more developed countries.
As a matter of economic, strategy, we must match international level of investment to participate national and global economy.
There is room for debate as to whether following the major expansion in higher education that has been take place over recent years, there is need in the immediate for further expansion and whether the labour market could Absorb further increase in the number of conventional graduates. A study of the likely future labour market needs for highly stalled workers by the institute for employment research (IRE) at the University of war-wick Look at head to the year 2000. it considers in some detail the likely change to occupation structures, based on change in the recent past.
The IRE research conclude that up to the year 2000 labour market requirements will largely be met by the current level of higher education participation.
Nigeria in seeking to provide its people with a high and improving standard of living will be able to do so and remain a major economy only if its people are highly educated and well trained.
It must match proportionally the investment made in their people by other nations and the volume and the quality of their out put from such educations and the training even now after participation rates by young people have doubled and the tan get set by the last government, third of young people to participate in full-time higher education by the year 2000 has been largely met, over level of participation remain behind the united state and Japan. However, the stock of graduates in the labour market compares well with many parts of high graduation rates, there as a long term expectation of growth in higher education in many countries especially those Pacific Rim.
Our degree programmes, whilst in high quality and comparable standard are in the main shorter (other than Scotland) than those of almost all other nation largely because of the very specialized nature of the A level examination system.
The researcher is interested in an investigation of economic factors affecting demand for those with higher education qualification. The future demand for those with higher education qualifications will be shaped by the changing structure of the national economy and the labour market, which in turn will be responding to changes in the world economy and the associated competitive challenge. These forces will find their response in the choice made by individual about participation in higher education and in employer demand for life long learning opportunities on behalf of their employers. The changing requirements of the labour market, labour market requirement for those with higher education qualification are changing dramatically. Many of the employer organization which gave evidence to us skill and qualities add value will multiply long number of graduates are adding value not just in expanding numbers of traditional graduate jobs but also in a widening of previously non-graduate roles.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the factor which influence student demand for higher education in Abeokuta metropolis: The specific objectives are
To assess the gains of the reform, five research question were raised;
What are the skill and attitudes that student acquire in higher education?
What are the factors that influence students demand for higher education?
What professional activities are carried out for the students demanding for higher educations?
What is the participation of the student demanding for higher education?
What is the remote factors responsible for student drive for a particular course.
