Less than 30 per cent of part-time university students get a bachelor degree, according to a new study.

Andrew Norton, Higher Education Program Director at the Grattan Institute, led the study. He told Ross and John that studying part-time is the biggest risk factor for dropping out.

“People take it on and think they can manage their family and job, and the reality is most of them can’t,” he said.

In comparison, nearly 80 per cent of full time students finish their degree within eight years.

“If there’s any way you can study full time then do it. That would be my advice,” he said.
