Transition to Higher Degrees across the UK: An Analysis of National, Institutional and Individual Differences. HEA Research Series
Wakeling, Paul; Hampden-Thompson, Gillian
Higher Education Academy
This Higher Education Academy (HEA) report investigates patterns of transition to postgraduate degrees in first degree graduates who successfully completed their studies in the 2009/10 and 2010/11 academic years, using data about their studies, their background characteristics and their activity after graduation provided by the Higher Education Statistics Agency. With this data it is possible to identify which kinds of graduates entered higher degrees, in which institutions, how they funded their studies and how they differ from their peers who did not begin a higher degree. It also indicates where further research is needed. Further technical details are appended.
