Student Transitions

Student Transitions is the current Enhancement Theme, running for three academic years from summer 2014.  This is an ambitious and comprehensive venture focusing on transitions into, during, and out of a programme of study at university.

The work is managed by QAA Scotland working with the Theme Leaders Group (TLG) which comprises members from each higher education institution plus student members. This group is Chaired by Professor Roni Bamber, Queen Margaret University.

In addition to the outline plan of the Theme, a logic model has also been developed.

Complete work

We have now completed two years' work including:


At the start of the Theme, we ran a well supported consultation event. The worksheet produced for that event is available on this page, along with the presentation.

In June 2015 we held our second international conference and in 2016 our 13th annual conference; their main focus was Student Transitions. Visit the resource section for many useful and relevant papers and presentations.
