Student funding, student retention and student experiences: perspectives from Bristol
Our paper summarises a suite of research projects based around the general themes of student funding, retention/withdrawals and student experiences which have been undertaken by the University of Bristol since 2013/14. Some are completed, some ongoing and some are in the planning stage. They focus both on students who have withdrawn and on continuing students. We contextualise the work against national higher education sector trends in funding and in other related research, particularly that from the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) on the lack of any relationship between student funding and withdrawals, and draw inferences from this. Our evidence so far from the Bristol perspective suggests otherwise: the University's financial support may both encourage student retention and add positively to the student experience of its recipients.
