How do students experience the transition into university? What type of support could be effective? Dr. Sanne van Herpen will clarify this during this lunch meeting.

Given that on average students’ level of academic success is lowest in the first year of higher education, it is important to clarify more systematically how students experience the transition into university and what type of support could be effective.

Dr. Sanne van Herpen (Risbo) investigated in her dissertation (2019) the transition from secondary education into university using a qualitative, a quantitative and a quasi-experimental research design. During the meeting, Sanne will elaborate on her research findings and discuss its implications for the educational research and practice within the EUR.
