Student Transitions

Student Transitions is the current Enhancement Theme, running for three academic years from summer 2014.  This is an ambitious and comprehensive venture focusing on transitions into, during, and out of a programme of study at university.

The work is managed by QAA Scotland working with the Theme Leaders Group (TLG) which comprises members from each higher education institution plus student members. This group is Chaired by Professor Roni Bamber, Queen Margaret University.

We have now almost completed the first year’s work and you will already see a number of resources on these pages, reflecting some of the work being carried out:

  • institutional pages with some early examples of practice - all of which can be sorted by topic

At the start of the Theme, we ran a well supported consultation event. The worksheet produced for that event is available on this page, along with the presentation.

We held our second international conference in June; its main focus was Student Transitions. Visit the resource section for many useful and relevant papers and presentations.

Those who are not familiar with how Themes run might be interested to read a Guide to the Theme, aimed at institutional teams.
