Abstract

This paper will present details and findings to date collected as part of a research project currently being undertaken at Aston University, Birmingham, UK.

In addition to Educational research literature, the research draws on “Emerging Adulthood” to assist in understanding the experience of students upon enrolling on a Higher Education degree. It is anticipated that the findings will contribute to the UK student retention debate as well as the adjustment literature.
