Abstract

This poster will showcase details of an umbrella project at the University of Bolton, UK which involves designing and implementing a series of interventions to understand student transition and engagement, with a view to improving the student journey. The project is designed to improve student transition into Bolton by addressing issues around social integration, engagement, early intervention and assessment of needs and pinpointing the times of year when students experience difficulties. It is also concerned with improving the learner experience and the learning environment. Finally, the project will also seek to understand what factors cause students to withdraw from university. It aims to build upon existing research, both locally and nationally, on academic retention, to understand how we can apply transition pedagogy (Kift & Nelson, 2005) in our own context to build an early intervention model which ensures that students “at risk” of low attainment and attrition are able to access support at the earliest opportunity.
