Abstract

Recently, the popular press labelled Australians as a "Nation of Dropouts". The Minister for Education blamed universities attributing low completion rates to a lack of transparency within universities. Other commentators from industry bodies such as the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry assign the blame to factors such as parental pressure to attend university and/or a lack of alignment of degrees with employment pathways. However, analysis of the factors impacting upon course completion suggests a more complex picture.
