Upping the Ante


Upping the ante

Honours students are expected to study independently, be multi-skilled, intellectually curious and committed to their development. This project focused on what students find challenging about getting ready for their Honours year to identify how we could make this transition period easier. We spoke to pre-Honours students, year four students and staff to get their views on transitioning into the fourth year of study.

Our findings will support students to feel more prepared for Honours study; it’s important to establish early in a student’s programme how they can prepare for their Honours year. We’ve set out several different ways to make this happen, for example through special events and an Honours induction programme.
