This publication, ‘Sector-Wide Discussion: the nature and purposes of the first year’, is an overview document, produced as part of the First Year Experience Enhancement Theme.

Key sources of data for the report were discussions with main institutional contacts, visits to approximately half of the Scottish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), and analysis of the reports that institutional contacts submitted. This information was supplemented by a detailed study of developments in Hong Kong HE, targeted analyses of Australian and American experiences, extracts from relevant work by the Higher Education Academy, and selected examples of initiatives in English HEIs. The data is described, analysed and synthesised to provide concluding remarks and suggestions for further consideration
