Edinburgh Napier University

For the second year of the Theme, the University is focusing on support for international student transitions.  They will undertake a scoping project reviewing existing international transitions support across the University, identifying good practice as well as gaps in provision. QAA funding will enable the University to employ a Research Assistant to work on this project part time for six months and, in doing so, generate their evidence base for enhancement of practice in this area.

The institutional lead is Julie Fotheringham.
