Nor Fauziana binti Ibrahim and Faezah Binti Othman,
Malaysia, there are basically three types of institutions offering
tertiary education. There are public universities, private universities
and also university colleges granting bachelor or advanced degree.
Nowadays, non-attendance in tertiary education seems to be a growing
trend. It is a frustrating phenomenon and yet there is a limited study
on student's non attendance particularly in private university. The
literature suggests many possible reasons of student's non attendance
including students' gender, attendance policy, personal issues,
instructor behavior and technology. This paper looks at the reasons for
student's non attendance in several private higher education institues
in Malacca, Malaysia.
