Improving retention and completion in higher education are important objectives throughout the world. The European Access Network has followed up their successful study of widening access to Higher Education with a collection that describes positive initiatives to improve student success. The work draws upon research and practice from Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America and England. The accounts are presented here because all have proved successful in attracting, and, crucially, retaining students from traditionally disadvantaged groups.
At a time when developed countries are extending and diversifying their university intake, this book will be useful to policy makers and managers in Higher Education and will offer insights to nontraditional students considering a university course.
