Abstract: This chapter applies a remote lens to the experience of rural students in higher education. Students from remote locations are usually subsumed within the regional students’ cohort for policy and support purposes. In a country as vast as Australia, their location and previous educational experience may mean that they face unique challenges undertaking university (Cassells et al., 2017). Their expectations and support needs may differ from their regional and metropolitan peers, as evidenced by the fact that currently remote students have one of the highest attrition rates for any undergraduate cohort in Australia. Without dedicated policy and practical support, these students may struggle to achieve their higher education goals.
