Abstract
This study uses secondary data analysis to investigate the motives behind non-traditional students starting university studies. The data were collected during the first part of a longitudinal on-line survey conducted at Masaryk University amongst first-year students attending all of the university’s bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes. The Academic Motivation Scale was the tool used in the original research to explore the university students’ reasons for beginning their studies. A sub-sample of the primary study population, adult students 26 years of age or older who had taken a break from their educational trajectories, were identified as non-traditional students. We found that the hierarchy of non-traditional students’ motives for entering higher education diverged from the hierarchy of the rest of the sample.
