Transitions Skills and Strategies

Date: December 12 - 2018

Students experience a variety of transitions during their journey through higher education. The Enhancement Themes website is full of resources aimed at helping students develop skills that will help them make these transitions more smoothly.

As part of the Student Transitions Enhancement Theme, we commissioned two projects to examine transition skills and strategies, resulting in over 40 resources.

These cover six essential transition skills:

  • self-belief
  • self-reflection
  • resilience
  • critical thinking
  • independent learning
  • management of expectations.

The resources have been grouped into six packages for different audiences and purposes:

  • students
  • students' associations
  • teaching staff
  • student support staff
  • induction
  • curriculum development.
