Student Transition into Higher Education

Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Campus
9 February 2009 15:00-16:30

The seminar will be given by Dr Matthew Williamson and Dr Giles Martin of QMUL and will be presenting some results of their research into student transition into higher education. This research, which focuses on expectations and experiences of learning and teaching and the ways in which students negotiate the transition from the teaching they have experienced before entering higher education and the methods they are exposed to, and skills they have to develop, once they start at university. The seminar will present some findings from the large scale survey of new entrants to HE carried out before they started their courses, as well as some initial findings from the interviews which were carried out with a sample of students during their first year of study. It will also investigate ways in which this transition can be made easier for students.
