Academic success and dropout phenomena

A high academic success rate is an important goal of higher education policy - not only because dropping out of universities can be accompanied by social and individual costs, but also because of the high shortage of skilled workers.

In order to obtain more reliable knowledge on how to improve the success rate in higher education, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) published the funding line "Academic success and dropout phenomena" in February 2016.

A second funding line was published in December 2019.
