Heron, Emma – 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.

Meehan, Catherine; Howells, Kristy – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Previous research that evaluated first year students' transition into university found that the values of 'being, belonging and becoming' were important in particular within the first few months and within the first year of university.

Murtagh, Lisa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This paper explores the lived realities of parent-trainee-teachers (parent-trainees), based on the theoretical concept of 'othering'. Othering practices can serve to reinforce and reproduce positions of domination and subordination. As such, those who are 'othered' often experience marginalisation, decreased opportunities and exclusion. This paper…

The transition into higher education is a critical time for all students.

Barton, Emma; Bates, Elizabeth A.; O'Donovan, Rachel – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019

Yale, Annabel T. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
The personal tutor plays a key role in the student experience at university, and personal tutoring embodies the student relationship with the university, suggesting that it has the potential to provide insights beyond that specific relationship to the institution and higher education context. A focus session with first year undergraduate students…
