What is Trans:it?

Trans:it is a collection of online study resources to help with your transition to higher education.

The aim of the Trans:it project is to make the transition from further to higher education easier for students, by producing a range of interactive learning materials for students and tutors.

You can also learn about the University's Trans:it Summer School - a two day programme that takes place in early September to help new students understand more about how to learn at University and meet other students.
