Summary

Students who drop out from their university studies are a concern not just for academic coordinators, financial managers, academic staff, careers advisors, the students' families and in particular the students themselves but also, and possibly for purely economic reasons, the university funding bodies.

Aside from presenting the international panorama of the phenomenon of university student drop-outs and the theoretical models that seek to explain this, the study offers evidence that helps to answer questions such as: Does dropping out of a course mean dropping out of university? When do students drop out? What is the social and demographic profile of students who drop out? Which courses have the highest drop-out rates? Are there any differences according to the type of studies and the university?
