The HEA invites proposals to undertake research that explores postgraduate transitions in higher education.
In particular, the project seeks to explore the following research questions:
- Which factors influence students’ decisions to make the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate education, specifically to taught and research degrees?
- Are there trends both in immediate transition and in later transition to postgraduate study and are they different?
- Which subject disciplines and institutions are more effective in progressing students from undergraduate to postgraduate study, and why?
Deadline for submission is 17:00 Friday 16 January 2015.
