Direct entrants as route guides to the higher education landscape
  Students who study for an HND at further education college and then join the university directly into the 3 rd year of their honours degree are a valuable segment of our academic community. This route provides opportunities for more people to gain HE degrees, including widening access and increasing social mobility. However, the move into a busy year, in an environment with different learning and teaching strategies, plus potential content and skills gaps, can be challenging. For seven years, the Associate Student Project have been working to support students on this route, through college, into university and onto graduation. Our longitudinal research helps us to understand the students' experience and what works to help them. Here we report, from survey findings, the advice students who have travelled this route feel would be most valuable for students moving forward from their HND at college into the 3 rd year of university.
