Fourie, Cornelius M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020

Cumulatively, the results of these research attempts show that drop out of students depends on several factors, of which only a relatively small number can directly be dealt with by universities. Therefore, the overall research problem…

Despite this, very little research has been carried out in Ireland on non-traditional students' experience of university. This article explores the…
