This literature review explores the possible reasons why Estate Management students experience such a high rate of attrition in other countries. In Nigeria, a significantly large portion of Estate Management students do not appear to have chosen to study the course on their own volition. The fact of having to study estate management seemed to be based on some external influence or as a last resort to forfeiting that year admission. There is low participation rate in estate management program across the different institutions in the country and to worsen the situation, not all those who enroll in the study graduate at the end of the 5-year programme. This study is a follow up on an earlier study on three universities in the South-West geopolitical zone of Nigeria. This attrition experienced in higher institution in Nigeria calls for serious scrutiny. This study is aimed at drawing a concept of the likely factors that may influenced attrition among estate management students in Nigeria. Thereafter, suggestions are made on ways to curb attrition.
