Project Overview


Taught postgraduate students represent an increasing proportion of the UK higher education sector. In 2018-19, almost 1 in every 3 new students enrolling on a Higher Education programme was a taught postgraduate, with numbers increasing by 5% from the previous year (HESA).


When considering taught postgraduate (PGT) provision, the very tight timelines and high number of part-time students add in an extra layer of complications to this idea of resilience. This project aims to identify what resilience looks like in a pragmatic context. By considering resilience in different groups, and the contextual factors likely to promote resilience, the project team will establish a shared vocabulary that can be used to embed effective resilience strategies in universities, programmes and groups such as students and staff.
