Project Overview

 

Standard approaches to university admission see students meet the criteria for acceptance and then receive a standardised cohort experience through their induction and initial learning journey.  However, as a sector, we are well aware that students enter our universities with a diverse range of abilities and skills.


This project aims to develop, implement and evaluate activities that better prepare the individual student to be successful. It will take a direct approach to targeting and supporting student need and utilise diagnostic testing of students on pre-arrival/arrival.

Event


The workshop held on 15th June debated the potential impacts of a PARC approach on macro (institutional), meso (school or faculty) and micro (programme/module/student) levels. This was informed by three brief papers, one per level, and an introductory paper, which sought to shape the discussion, provide a foundation of theoretical knowledge, and offer a challenge to institutions around the topic and the level of engagement. Participants discussed the papers and made suggestions for improvement which the partners will implement as the initiative moves forward.
