Abertay University carried out a mapping of their student transitions landscape, to help understand how this affected current policies and practices. Part of this activity was to analyse gaps of provision and identify areas they could develop.


Their programme of work during the Student Transitions Theme includes:

  • pilot projects on the topics of pre-entry support
  • course transitions
  • transitions to employment.

During year three of the Theme, the University funded institutional projects relating to online learning and student transitions. A condition of the funding was that all projects had a student engagement element. To stimulate sharing good practice, Abertay organised an internal conference on transitions. The institution also engaged with the Themes through participating in the national conference.


Key areas of work


Online learning and student transitions, students with disabilities, transitions of international students, student engagement, widening access, employability and skills, application and first year.
