Selecting and supporting future graduates in British Columbia Salem, Stephen


The educational journey is long and difficult. Students who engage in further studies face many challenges as they progress towards a degree or other certification. These barriers are both academic and non-academic, and higher educational institutions need to be aware of these challenges in order to support students in their journey to credential completion. This essay will provide an overview of factors considered relevant to success both from the student’s perspective and the institution’s perspective. This journey begins long before a student applies and in many cases continues off and on for the rest of his or her life.
