Provoked by urbanisation and the rise of popular democratic rights, the western education system was overwhelmed by changes during the 19th century. Such changes did not even begin to touch the elite world of the university establishment which, it oculd be argued, remained the province of the aristocratic and wealthy ranks until the 1920s.
