McCulloch, Alistair – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2022
When Louis Pasteur remarked that chance favours the prepared mind, he was commenting on the important role played by serendipity in scientific discovery.

Gravett, Karen; Kinchin, Ian M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021
This article examines teachers' perspectives on a neglected area of practice: academic referencing.

Tobbell, Jane; Burton, Rob; Gaynor, Andrea; Golding, Berenice; Greenhough, Kath; Rhodes, Christine; White, Stephen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021
There is a paucity of literature which explores students' subjective meanings of inclusion in higher education (HE). Much of the focus is on the social exclusion debate, where HE is seen as a mechanism for the promotion of social equality. There is some research which explores students' experiences, but this mostly involves those students who have…

Postgraduate taught student experience (PGT) is the product of a complex journey.

Recognising the changing landscape and financial costs, changes in the higher education sector continue to challenge the purpose and operations of universities, notably the shift towards student consumerism.

Social support at university is key for student wellbeing and retention. The majority of undergraduate students live with same-age housemates, so examining the relationship that students have with their housemates may be critical for understanding student adjustment. However, to date, social relationships within university accommodation have not…
