The sample for the study was undergraduate students enrolled in courses in; arts, business, education, health sciences and science. The sample excluded students doing a one year end-on Honours degree, as they had already completed a three-year undergraduate degree and would not, therefore, be typical of undergraduate students.

Arts, business, education, health sciences, and science were chosen as disciplines which have a good mix of students studying on-campus and online, including those remote from any of the campuses. Entry was through a variety of admission modes, indicating that the intake consisted of non-traditional entrants together with school leavers with a tertiary entrance score. There was a significant proportion of mature students. International students were excluded, as with the other three universities.

The total sample for the study was N = 8911, after those with incomplete records were deleted.
