Beyond access to HE: Widening Access initiatives and student retention in Scotland

Details: 

AQMeN Co-Director Professor Cristina Iannelli and Dr Gitit Kadar-Satat will present key findings from the first national study of the factors associated with non-continuation rates in Higher Education. Following the presentation of their research findings, we will hear from practitioners from both the school and university sectors and from students who have benefited from the widening access programmes.

Throughout the day delegates will discuss issues relating to inequalities in Higher Education retention and explore strategies to support students from less advantaged backgrounds to make a successful journey into HE.
