Research Report No.386

LINGUA DELLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

Slightly dated but comprehensive report aimed at trying to find out why so many students drop out of higher education and how the drop out rate could be reduced.

The main influencers identified then were:

A mistaken choice of course (24% of respondents)
Financial problems (18% of respondents)
Personal problems (14% of respondents)

The main factors which would have encouraged them to stay on were:

More financial support (18.7% of respondents)
Encouragement from tutors (12.2% of respondents)
Ability to change course (9.4% of respondents)
More advice prior to entry (8.8% of respondents)

COMMENTO SULLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

Interesting report but I found the content disappointing in that lessons do not appear to have been learned since 2003.

Many of the reasons and beneficial actions identified then were again identified as reasons and actions which would have helped, during our interviews conducted in 2008, for this project.
