Research output: Contribution to Book/Report typesConference contribution

Abstract

Students leave their courses or quit university for many reasons. Some of these reasons may include a lack of belonging, difficulty with the subject matter, and or problems communicating learning needs. Communication with first-year students is particularly vital. It is central to their developing community, feeling part of the university culture and seeking support at crucial assessment points.
