Queen Margaret University

Queen Margaret University plans to develop a detailed map of transition points and processes in the student journey at QMU and the practices that support their students through them.  This map will then be used to shape the second and third year of the theme, where funded institutional projects will take place to develop new proposals of how to improve student transitions within the university.

The institutional lead is Jo Rowley.
