This Enhancement Theme explored the transitions of students into, through and out of study at university. During the three years of the Theme (2014 – 17) we completed a range of institution work and sector-wide projects. We also evaluated the work carried out during the Theme and again at the end of the Theme and published reports on the findings.

sector-wide projects

A range of sector-wide projects focusing on key areas of transition. The activities helped staff and students work in collaborative and creative ways.

Transition Skills and Strategies

Student Transitions Map

A separate website where you can browse a large collection of resources, relating to the student journey.

Inter-institutional collaboration
