Learning Objectives:

• Consider the benefits of outduction, a concept and strategy of adequately preparing students to leave higher education and make a smooth and effective transition after graduation.

• Recognise the benefits of supporting and enhancing the student experience throughout the student life-cycle for student success and to aid retention, progression and to attract students.

• Identify and critique the key transitions in the study journey and the role of stakeholders (the student, higher education staff and the institution) to support these transitions through strategy and policy.

• Create ways to maximise the use of alumni in supporting student success.

Description:

Supporting and enhancing the undergraduate and postgraduate student experience throughout the student life-cycle is a critical activity in higher education not only to aid retention and progression but in a highly competitive HE market, the quality of the student experience is pivotal in HEIs attracting students.
