Five key questions provided the framework within which this project was carried out:
1 What are the key generic issues associated with transition to HE?
2 What are the specific issues associated with different types of students (in terms of learner profile and prior learning context), particular modes of learning, particular subject areas and particular types of institution?
3 What approaches are being used or developed within institutions or in partnership with other organisations, such as schools, colleges and community-based learning providers, to tackle these issues, both pre- and post-entry?
4 What are the key features of effective approaches to supporting transition to the first year?
5 In what ways might higher education institutions (HEIs) enhance the support for transition to the first year in order to more effectively engage and empower students? What are the barriers to this and what support do HEIs need in effecting such changes?
A review of literature, web-based research and consultation with practitioners and policymakers was undertaken to address these questions. This report considers the outcomes of that process. Consultation with students on the first-year experience has been undertaken through the First Year Experience Enhancement Theme sector-wide exploration project,'Student expectations, experiences and reflections on the first year'.
