Non-completion of higher education is a growing concern and has prompted increasing research into its causes. This study aims to investigate academic staff’s understanding of student retention and progression issues. Results from a questionnaire and interviews suggest that staff focus on student-based factors related to non-completion rather than on factors related to teaching practice and curriculum design.
