Retention and Success


'Retention’ in the UK refers to students remaining within one higher education (HE) institution and completing their programme of study within a specific timeframe. ‘Success’ recognises that students benefit from HE study in a wider range of ways, including personal development and progression into the labour market or further learning.

Retention and success involves inclusion, ensuring the full and equitable participation in and progression through higher education for all students. We work closely in partnership with institutions and sector bodies to promote cultural change and policies and practices that can enhance an excellent student learning experience.
