Tobbell, Jane; Burton, Rob; Gaynor, Andrea; Golding, Berenice; Greenhough, Kath; Rhodes, Christine; White, Stephen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021

There is some research which explores students' experiences, but this mostly involves those students who have…

Buchanan, Denise Rosemary – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020

This article reflects on a novel method to elicit understanding of students' journeys. At a time when universities need to know much more about their students, sector understanding runs the risk of being limited and rather shallow.
