Postgraduate transitions project

The second project that the Enhancement Themes Student Network took forward in Year 1 of the Theme was creating a repository of good practice in postgraduate transitions, which universities can use to inform and improve their practice. The examples already received have formed a working case study document on the website and can be accessed by anyone. We  would like this project to be ongoing and encourage staff and students to submit case studies on positive examples of transitions into, through, and out of postgraduate study. 

Please complete the short Word document on the right of this page and email it to QAASadmin@qaa.ac.uk.

The form is not to be used to submit your actual case study.  Its purpose is just to provide a brief note on what your case study will focus on. We will be in touch after you have submitted this form to discuss your proposed case study in a bit more detail.

We would like this to be a really interesting and engaging resource. As such, it would be great to have case studies in a variety of formats, be that a written piece, video or perhaps a podcast.

This work will contribute to the National Map of Transitions which the Student Transitions Enhancement Theme is developing.
