Promoting dialogue across curricular boundaries

We aim to help foster a growing understanding of our future learners by exploring key issues in regards to curriculum, approaches to learning and teaching, and helping students to make the transition from pre-university pathways to the expectations of degree-level study.

Curriculum Transitions, August 2019

Our first Curriculum Transitions event took place in August 2019. A panel of secondary school teachers representing A-level biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and maths, and BTEC applied sciences and health and social care, were joined by staff from across the university to discuss key issues in student transition to university. We also examined the nature of recent changes to school curricula and the similarities and differences to typical university courses.
