Dropped-out Students and the Decision to Drop-out in Hungary
Published October 1, 2019

We tried to identify higher education dropout scenarios and pointed out that higher educational dropout is a complex phenomenon. Based on the students' reports on their interpretation and evaluation of their dropouts, four student clusters were created.
