Abstract

Madeleine Bornschlegl investigated factors related to academic help-seeking behaviour in higher education. She found that reducing stigma, increasing positive attitudes and subjective norm, ensuring satisfaction, and providing timely and targeted promotion increase engagement with academic support. Universities can use these findings to improve academic support and ultimately student success.
