First year student experience in Australian universities: findings from two decades 1994-2014

Ryan Naylor of the University of Melbourne gave this talk to the University community on 27 November. His talk provided an analysis of trends over a twenty year period in the attitudes and experiences of first year students in Australian universities. It was based on the national survey of first year students undertaken by the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education at five-yearly intervals since 1994. There was a rich variety of data to present, covering the whole range from outreach programs, to intention to come to university, and on to whether expectations were met.
