Students can experience many transitions during their time in university. For instance, when they start university, move between different levels of their course and when they finish their studies. We commissioned a project to explore the skills and strategies that a student might develop and use during a transition, or period of change. The aim of the project was to provide students and staff with resources to support them in understanding transitions.
