Student transitions to university in Wales during COVID-19
This report presents the results of a mixed methods study that explored how prepared first year undergraduate Education students were for the transition to university during the COVID-19 pandemic in Wales.
The report presented here is aimed at those interested in reading about educational research exploring the experiences and perspectives of first year undergraduates on their transition to university. Readers are likely to be those writing education policy; school, college and university leadership and staff involved in programme development; and education researchers.
The work was part of the Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) seminar series and reports. These detail the findings of eighteen collaborative research projects, involving HEIs and other organisations, that looked at impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the education system and on particular groups of learners. They examine ways to mitigate those impacts, as well as ways practitioners and learners can be better supported moving forwards.
