This report entitled ‘Curriculum design for The First Year - Literature Review’ is a literature review carried out within one of the practice-based development projects for the Enhancement Theme on the First Year Experience. The project aims to investigate practices in the design of the first year curriculum in higher education.

The report outlines the literature search strategy and the results of the search. The literature is synthesised in relation to the importance of engaging and empowering students, the potential role of curriculum, examples of innovative practice, and an analysis of influences on curriculum design. Research in the area is critiqued and suggestions are made for future practice and evaluation.
