European First Year Experience Network (EFYE) 2014 Conference
The EFYE Conference was hosted by Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, England, building on a rich history of conferences in the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland.
There were two main themes this year:
The student lifecycle
- How do we prepare students for their new lives at university?
- How do we best deliver new students' inductions?
- How do we help students to make the transition through the year?
- How do we prepare students for subsequent studies?
Building a first year experience for European and international students
With increasing opportunities to study across Europe, how do we build a first year experience to suit European and international students?
