The current concern with engaging and retaining students
through their transition from secondary to tertiary education is here given new
perspectives. Widening participation and the increasingly target-driven modern
higher education environment have combined to push retention into the forefront
of many institutions’ concerns. The STAR project, conducted at the University
of Ulster, is described as a means of providing evaluated examples of good
practice in managing student transition. The detail, breadth and scope of the
project will surely render it among the most useful and informative examples of
literature on the subject, addressing a variety of challenges and issues from
national and university strategies to course and departmental level.
