What is the policy background to current interest in retention and student success? What causes students to leave institutions without completing their programmes? How can theory and research help institutions to encourage student success? Retention and completion rates are important measures of the performance of institutions and higher education systems. Understanding the causes of student non-completion is vital for an institution seeking to increase the chances of student success. The early chapters of this book discuss retention and student success from a public policy perspective.The later chapters concentrate on theory and research evidence, and on how these can inform institutional practices designed to enhance retention and success (particularly where students are enrolled from disadvantaged backgrounds). This book draws upon international experience, particularly from the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and the United States. "Retention and Student Success in Higher Education" is essential reading for lecturers, support staff, and senior managers in higher education institutions, and for those with a wider policy interest in these matters.
