Abstract


This article presents the research on support needs of the most vulnerable students in nonuniversity higher education. The research results have revealed that older, part-time students who have family and/or work responsibilities focus on academic information and counselling, foreign language training, distance study centre, legal counselling and psychological counselling services. It has also been found that traditional age, full-time students who have no work and/or no family responsibilities and whose motivation to study is low require more career designing, psychological counselling, student accommodation, financial support and legal counselling services.
