About the Study

Transition is all about change. For students transitioning from college/sixth form or for mature students, settling into a university-level academic programme is a process of moving from one community to another (Tinto, 1988). This usually involves moving into new living arrangements, adjusting to a new environment, building new relationships with peers and engaging effectively with their studies. Therefore, ensuring a smooth transition requires a degree of support and guidance from the university and its wider community.
