This report looks at factors that influence university course completion by young Australians. It follows a group of young Australians over a period of nine years. It provides understanding into course completion rate, in particular, the socio-demographic and educational factors. It also documents labour market outcomes of those who leave university before obtaining qualifications. In addition, it asks whether even a partial university experience can lead to further pathways.
