Introducing Scottish Higher Education Student Transitions Map

As part of the Student Transitions project, QAA Scotland has developed an innovative, interactive resource capturing examples of practice relating to the way students enter, move through, and ultimately leave university.

Showcased at the Conference, the Scottish Higher Education Student Transitions Map functions as a visual representation of the student journey, as well as a source of useful information for students and staff. It contains almost 400 examples of practice, and is a useful resource for anyone interested in student transitions. To learn more about the Map and how to use it, please visit the Student Transitions Map website.
