Griffith has expanded its intake to admit a diverse student body and has a reasonable proportion of low SES students. It also has students studying online and by mixed mode. It, therefore, can be regarded as a university which has taken significant steps towards a contemporary model of higher education.In this chapter the Griffith model will be compared to that of UTAS, which also has a contemporary model. Key distinctions between the two are that;Griffith is a metropolitan university, whereas UTAS has regional and rural characteristics.The population samples have notably different characteristics such as the proportions admitted on a basis other than secondary, those living in regional and remote areas, those studying online, those studying less than a 70% load and those older than 24.The presentation will follow the order and approach of the previous chapter by first examining the overall model, then considering the contribution to the model of the individual variables. In each case there will be comparison between the two universities.
