The session will focus on the issues that face students during the transition to university, and as they move on through their education, and will reflect on the experiences of diverse students through a psychological lens. We will explore some practical ways to help students to successfully navigate transitions, and also consider whether it is helpful to “problematise” transitions, or to consider them as a normal part of the student (and human) life experience.
