Description

A longitudinal study that examined the experiences of 45 students who began their degrees in CHSS in 2004 and 2005 with HNC and HND qualifications - qualitative and quantitive data gathered for 4 years of degree and a year beyond. £900 funding was provided by CHSS to support interviews.

Key findings

The study found that students with HN qualifications fared no better and no worse than those with more traditional entry qualifications; moreover the study gave a lot of useful general information about the experiences of students once in HE.
