Abstract

Students in this rapidly changing world need a reliable support system to enable the intended educational outcomes. However, on the other hand, many institutions of higher learning, globally are perceived to lack a comprehensive student support system that effectively and efficiently cater for graduate students in higher education. This study utilized the Documentary Research Methodology (DRM) to explore the perceived factors affecting the graduates’ support system (GSS) and the engagement level of graduate students in higher education. The DRM tool was used to systematically select and review 63 of peer-reviewed articles on student support-system and engagement. Reviewed articles were retrieved from the Wiley online Library, Siam Library, Research Gate Library, and Scientific Research Library, to generate the Graduate Support System and Engagement Model (GSS-EM) for use by the institutions. The paper argues that since the landscape of higher education is changing rapidly, the overall commitment of the graduate students to engage and to succeed will factor on a comprehensive support system implemented by relevant and useful management. The Model generated from this study may serve as a tool for future empirical studies on the
topic or related areas of academic research. Recommendations were offered to relevant management bodies in higher learning institutions to adopt support systems that meet both local and international best practices.

Keywords:  Student support, International Graduates, Engagement, Student-engagement.
