Abstract

This paper explores the transitions that a group of students, admitted from further education colleges as part of broader widening access initiative at a Scottish research-intensive university, made across the lifetime of their degrees. It investigates how they negotiated their learning careers beyond the first year, and how they (re)defined their approaches to independent learning as they progressed to the later years of their courses. Evidence is drawn from 20 students, who were interviewed during each of their three or four years of study, to provide a longitudinal account of their experiences of engagement and participation at the university.
