Event description

Description

The TEQSA Commission invites you to join us at our launch of the TEQSA Occasional Forum Series to discuss the report on Characteristics of Australian higher education providers and their relation to first-year student attrition.

The forum will provide a contribution to the discussion on student attrition as identified by TEQSA as a major risk factor for higher education providers. Indeed, it is the most common indicator of high risk to students across the sector. TEQSA undertook a study of first-year student attrition to determine whether institutional characteristics might identify factors which are associated with higher attrition rates.

The study provided details on institutional characteristics which may be associated with higher levels of attrition in 130 higher education providers. It grouped together similar providers and sought out common institutional characteristics that could be linked to higher levels of attrition. The decision to focus on institutional characteristics, and not characteristics of individual students, was led by TEQSA’s regulatory approach which assesses each provider.

The forum will run from 4 to 5 pm and will be followed by drinks from 5 to 6 pm. We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you at this event.

Participants

Dr Linley Martin, Commissioner (TEQSA), Professor Pip Pattison, Deputy Vice Chancellor Education (The University of Sydney) Professor Nick Saunders AO, Chief Commissioner (TEQSA), Anthony McClaran, Chief Executive Officer (TEQSA).
