    Factors Influencing University Student Satisfaction, Dropout and Academic Performance: Equity (NCSEHE)

    This NCSEHE funded study, Factors Influencing University Student Satisfaction, Dropout and Academic Performance: An Australian Higher Education Equity Perspective, looks at the determinants of student satisfaction at university, with a focus on equity group differences. The influence of student satisfaction on being at risk of dropping out of university, actual university degree dropout, and academic performance at university are also examined. Students from equity groups, particularly non-English speaking background students and students with disability, have lower levels of satisfaction across various satisfaction dimensions. Further, students from equity groups have poorer academic scores and are more likely to be at risk of university dropout, with health and financial reasons identified to be important determinants for leaving university. These findings support the need for multi-faceted initiatives to support higher education students from equity groups. (Ian W. Li and David R. Carroll, University of Western Australia)
