In tertiary education, (ii) unemployment among university graduates, in general, are rising. Therefore, (iii) potential NEET group students, especially in the 1st year, who, apart from reduced study fees, require extra motivation and moral support from educators. The aim of the paper is to find out how to solve the dropout crisis applying digtal opportunities for 1st-year universities students’ by an educational support and motivation enhancement.
