Student Retention and Success Symposium

A presenter-led event to learn, discuss and share latest practices in student retention and success.

Date: 8 December 2022
Location: theStudio, Leeds

This symposium will provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in student retention and success; providing evidence-informed examples and ideas for university staff and students to address the challenges of attrition, retention and student success in higher education.

The issue of student poverty is as old as universities themselves, but the cost of living crisis will have far-reaching implications for student retention and success. The rising costs of accommodation, fuel and food are already a concern for many students, and will potentially have a detrimental impact on all aspects of their learning and wider student experience. The result may be poorer outcomes for many, and for some, may mean that they cannot continue their studies at all.

Students’ fundamental needs (food, shelter and transport) must be met to ensure their physical, mental and social wellbeing, which is in turn crucial for students to attain their educational potential. Solutions to this problem will be complex and multifaceted; this symposium aims to explore the issue holistically from all perspectives to inform whole-university approaches to tackling student poverty.
