The study start concept helps educators to create greater coherence at the study start with a focus on academic communities.
The study start is a significant transition for new students as they establish themselves both academically and socially. The transition to being a student in higher education can be a vulnerable period that can activate a high degree of insecurity, doubt, and worry. Therefore, it is essential to have a study start that speaks to, and includes, different new students and prevents exclusion among groups of students who fall outside the perceived majority norm.
Management, educators, student counsellors, and students participate precisely to support a study start concept that is felt to be strongly rooted in the education.
