Abstract

The drop-out rate among students studying part-time is much higher than full-timers. Clearly, studying while holding down a job does seem to be problematic for many. But why? Obviously, there is pressure on time for part-time students who are also working. But in an attempt to go into the problem in more depth and pinpoint more factors in the higher drop-out rate, this study examines data from a management system that administers student information. As an exemplar, the study focuses on a particular study program, because the curriculum is the same for full and part-time students. And by comparing data, it became obvious that a key factor was the age profile of the student drop-outs. The upshot of our findings is that changes in the organizational aspects of a part-time study program can help to improve this situation.
