Supporting Transition for Direct Entry Students – Report now available

The Project ‘Supporting Transition for Direct Entry Students’ has published its findings and examples of effective practice in a Guide for Staff Improving Direct Entry Student Experience of Transition to Top-Up/Honours Degree’ (July 2019). 

The Project set out to identify the key challenges and factors that may impede successful transition and establish ways to improve experiences of ‘Direct Entry/Top-Up’ students entering an Honours Degree.

Based on research, students’ views of their transition experience and the personal experiences of staff working with Direct Entry students, the Guide aims to provide practical advice for course leaders and staff who deliver Top-Up degrees or encounter students who enter Honours Degrees at Level 5 or Level 6 (Direct Entry students) with a view to improving students’ experiences of transition and positively impacting on their satisfaction and achievement in their Honours Degrees.
