Join the Dots

We have launched a brand new programme, Join the Dots, a national initiative which brings schools and universities together to develop a network of support for students during the transition to university.

The programme will connect schools, universities and students to share knowledge and set goals for a successful transition. It will build communities of students to identify, discuss and address shared challenges and foster a sense of belonging at university. Through 1-1 and peer group coaching, it will help students to develop key university study strategies and be a link for students to access university support as needed.

If you would like to get involved with the Join the Dots pilot as a PhD coach, you can find out more about the role and how to apply via the button below.
