Transition Review information
Transition Review is a process designed to ensure that new undergraduate students are actively engaging in their transition to university and are fully aware of the opportunities and resources available to support them.
What is Transition Review?
Transition Review is a formal review of academic progress and personal adjustment for students during their first year. It is compulsory for first year students and allows you to discuss your progress with your Personal Tutor, discuss the various sources of academic support available and also possible academic and professional development opportunities.
When does it take place?
The Transition Review period will take place between weeks 1 and 6 of semester 2. In 2014, this is between 13 January and 21 February.
Who does it involve?
Transition Review is compulsory for all new entrant undergraduate students (including direct entry students who have entered later years of study). The Review will be completed by your Personal Tutor. Joint Honours students will have their Transition Review tutorial with their Personal Tutor from their home school or department.
How it works
The core component of Transition Review is an extended 1 to 1 Personal Tutor meeting. This is likely to last around 30 minutes. At this meeting you will:
discuss your academic and personal development
review your assessment feedback
discuss your achievements to date
consider any early career goals
complete a study needs analysis
You should receive an invitation to this meeting from your school or department in the new term. If you have not received an invitation, please contact your Personal Tutor directly.
In order to prepare for this meeting, you should complete the Transition Review pre-tutorial form and submit it to your Personal Tutor in advance of your meeting.
Transition Review events
The Academic Skills Centre is running a series of events aimed at students during the Transition Review period.
