Widening Participation

Moving On

The course is designed as a week long bridging course linking pre-university study with undergraduate work.

Moving On is a transition to degree study course was developed and piloted in 2003 by the Centre for Open Learning in collaboration with Student Recruitment and Admissions (SRA).

The course is designed to link pre-university study with undergraduate work and aims to build students’ confidence before the start of their degree. It provides an opportunity for students to learn about and experience the different style of learning and support at university and to meet other new students. Over the course of the three day programme, students have visits to different campuses - as well as to the University library - and attend sessions covering skills such as note-taking in lectures and speaking in tutorials. Students also prepare their own presentations, which they deliver to small groups of their peers at the end of the course.

Moving On takes place prior to Welcome Week, and is targeted on LEAPS-eligible students who have not attended the LEAPS Summer School; College students entering from an HN background; and students who reside in an area of relative deprivation, as defined by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD). Offer-holders who are eligible to take part are invited to apply directly by the University's Centre for Open Learning in the June prior to the start of their course.

The course is free to attend and funding may also be avaiable for the reimbursement of travel and / or childcare costs.
