dc.description.abstract Research indicates that the dropout rate for fi rst-year students in universities is traditionally higher than for later years,1 with external or distance students posing the highest risk of withdrawal from studies of any group.2 This has been the case with the Bachelor of Taxation (BTax) in the Australian School of Taxation (Atax), Faculty of Law at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). The BTax program is offered nationally in an off-campus delivery mode and focuses on teaching taxation and commercial law as well as economics and accounting. The majority of its students are in fulltime employment, studying part-time; and generally students are in their late 20s to early 40s. A range of support measures, including student peer mentoring, has been successfully employed in Australia and elsewhere as a strategy to support fi rst-year university students in their studies.
