Two thirds of students dropping out of some courses at top UK universities, new figures show

More than two thirds of students studying some degrees at the UK’s biggest universities are dropping out after first year, according to new research.

Middlesex and Wrexham both offered courses which had drop-out rates of 67 per cent, including human resources management and marketing and consumer psychology respectively. 

While at London Metropolitan University 59 per cent of students left a film, media and music degree course without completing their first year, prompting concerns about whether universities are providing value for money.

A freedom of information request submitted by Sky News revealed that a number of the biggest institutions in the country offer courses where over a third of students leave after just a few months.
