Student drop-out rise

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

TWO thirds of uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges have seen an in­crease in the pro­por­tion of stu­dents drop­ping out in the last five years, of­fi­cial fig­ures show.

A PA news agency anal­y­sis shows that in some cases, non-con­tin­u­a­tion rates have risen by more than five per­cent­age points.

The fig­ures come at a time when uni­ver­si­ties are un­der greater scru­tiny and pres­sure to be more trans­par­ent about ar­eas such as drop-out rates and grad­u­ate out­comes.
