Taylor, Janet A. and Bedford, Tasman (2004) Staff perceptions of factors related to non-completion in higher education. Studies in Higher Education, 29 (3). pp. 375-394. ISSN 0307-5079


Non-completion of higher education is a growing concern and has prompted increasing research into its causes. This study aims to investigate academic staff's understanding of student retention and progression issues. Results from a questionnaire and interviews suggest that staff focus on
student-based factors related to non-completion rather than on factors related to teaching practice and curriculum design.
