"It's about transforming lives!": Supporting students in post pandemic higher education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Not all students have an equal chance of success in higher education, and many in HE are working to address that. Students might consider themselves "non-traditional" in their study contexts for many reasons, including age, socio-economic background, nationality / ethnicity / "race", religion, caring responsibilities, gender, disability status, LGBTQIA+ concerns, family estrangement, care experience, being first-in-family to participate in HE, holding non-standard entry qualifications, and many more - with students seldom presenting only a single reason. HE needs to be as "good" to these students as to others. Using previously unpublished interview data brought into conversation with current concerns, this chapter - in comic strip format - reflects on what makes HE "good", and how those working or studying in HE, might help to ensure that HE stays (or becomes) "good" when there are so many challenges.
