Abstract

This paper reports on the piloting of a transitions programme that sought to enhance student retention and experience by early intervention embedded in a core first-year curriculum. The transition to university has been identified in the academic literature as being a major component in the success of retention and completion of students, in particular ensuring students are equipped with the appropriate Higher Education (HE) study skills as well as developing a sense of community between staff and students.
