Of the four universities in the study, Melbourne represents the traditional end of the spectrum. The demographic characteristics, reported in Table 3.1, show that it has a more traditional model of student intake. As all students are taught on-campus, mode of study did not appear in the hypothesised model. While all undergraduate students initially enrol as full-time, a number subsequently did not enrol for enough units to meet the full-time load requirement. For modelling purposes, values for proportion of full-time load were extracted from the database so the variable could be included in the model.
