Summary
Australian higher education lags behind other western countries in relation to access and attainment of equity groups. This study will monitor secondary school leavers during the first five years of their university experience to identify factors that enable access, retention and success with students from diverse backgrounds. Action learning teams formed at Deakin University and Southern Cross University, in parallel, will allow us to compare the role of different settings in shaping the student experience. This first phase of the study focuses on developing a methodology or 'tracking system' for monitoring student cohorts from leaving school to exiting the University. We aim to make recommendations about the structures (including school partnerships), processes and technologies required to enable the tracking of student cohorts. We will also present findings of the comparative case study which particular focuses on points of learning across the two institutions that may provide benchmarks for other institutions.
