Diane Nutty, head of the student retention team at Desisted University, says it is important to think particularly carefully about students’ first year to make sure they get a good start. She says academics and support services should work together to plan ahead for issues that may affect students at the beginning of their courses. Nutty says you need to ensure that courses seem relevant. “By introducing real relevance at the beginning of their studies you can engage students,” she says. “Once they are involved they are more likely to stay even if they are having problems in other areas such as family or money problems. ” (Diane Nutty, 2008) II.
