Abstract

In higher education, the rate at which students discontinue their studies is unfortunately very high. Part of the cause for these high rates lies with the students themselves. However another part lies with the institutions. If administrators are to reduce the rate of discontinuation by changing their selection, teaching, guidance, and support facilities, they must be guided by proper data. The present study reports such data based on an investigation at an Australian university.
