Personal profile

Biography

Dennis started at Huddersfield in 1998 as a lecturer and then progressed to a senior lecturer. After spending some time involved with part-time provision he gradually developed an interest in the student experience and was appointed first year tutor for the Business programmes in 2002. Retention in the first year of the programme was poor and this was the catalyst which led to his interest in student retention, and ultimately to his completion of a doctoral thesis in 2012. Between 2005 and 2008 the Business programme had one of the highest year 1 to year 2 retention rates in the university, and the improvements  equated to a saving of around £100,000 in lost fees.
