Student Engagement in Relation to their Field of Study
Kapitel i bok, 2011
Students’ field of study is one of the largest sources of variation in levels of student engagement. The programmes undertaken by students influence many aspects of students’ university experience, including the way in which students are taught and how they engage in study. There are also some notable differences in the demographics of students who enrol in particular fields of study, the most obvious of which is differences in the proportions of female and male students studying particular fields of study. However, there are also differences in the proportion of international students, mature-aged students and students of different ethnic backgrounds.
