On becoming an undergraduate : transition to university
Tindle, Elizabeth (1996) On becoming an undergraduate : transition to university. Journal of the Australian and New Zealand Student Services Association, pp. 3-22.
This paper investigates the first year experience of undergraduates with a view to discovering some of the factors which determine a successful negotiation of the transitional phase. The paper begins with a theoretical framework of transition based on the three models of Van Gennep (1960), Viney (1980) and Tinto (1987) and applied to the educational transition from school to University. A new model of transition is presented which looks at the relationship between social and academic adjustment of students to university over time.
