Characteristics of Australian higher education providers and their relation to first-year student attrition, reports on a TEQSA study which analysed attrition data for 130 Australian higher education providers.

TEQSA’s study differs from previous research by focusing on institutional characteristics that may be linked to higher levels of attrition, rather than characteristics of individual students – consistent with the agency’s regulatory approach which assesses each provider. Based on 2014 data, the study grouped together similar providers and sought out common institutional characteristics that could be linked to higher levels of attrition by using 'multivariate regression models'.
