First year business students on an outer metropolitan campus were surveyed to evaluate their experiences of university. Students enrolled on this campus tended not have received their first preference, were in longer hours of paid employment and exhibited greater disengagement with the institution and peers. The survey data will inform the evoluation of the specific first year program on the campus. The current survey demonstrates that it is dangerous to simply expect national data to apply to all institutional campuses.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
