Transition Project

Transition into University life 

Any new student to the University of Southampton, whether home, EU or international, UG or PG, has an overwhelming amount to adjust to: new people, new surroundings and a new way of learning.

This project works with staff and students across the University to develop new ways of enhancing the experience for new students as they adjust to living and learning at the University of Southampton.

iii) gain useful information from the sector around good practice in this area.

iv) discover relevant links to external resources.
