[Extract] We will all be acutely aware of issues affecting rural students and their academic journey. We know that rural and remote students are disadvantaged in university education and identified as an ‘equity cohort’. Rural-origin students face significant barriers gaining access to higher education with equity targets not being met. Participation and attainment rates of remote, rural and regional students remain considerably lower than those of metropolitan students. Beyond gaining access, for some students from the bush completing their studies is a further challenge. Given this foundational concern, how should the AJRH readership advocate that universities of the future improve access for, and retention of, rural students?
