Forecasting Student Entrants, Flows and Success Rates. Technical Report. Studies in Institutional Management in Higher Education.
Han, Stjepan; And Others
This document is concerned with an information system to study the internal dynamics of student flows, choice of subjects and success rates, taking into account different regional affiliations and the socioeconomic backgrounds of students. Among the external factors to be considered will be the demographic dimension in terms of changes in the number of potential entrants due to demographic influences. Equally important consideration is being given to technological developments in the country. Thus far, an inquiry covering 1,200 secondary school dropouts in the autonomous region of Voivodina came to the conclusion that eight high school pupils out of ten intend to continue their education at a university and that they are interested in studying law, arts, economics, engineering, and technology. A thorough investigation of student flows at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Novi Sad came to the conclusion that forecasting the number of incoming students must take into consideration the large variations in the number of entering students, the relatively small number of graduates, and the relatively large number of dropouts after the first and the second year of study.
