Upcoming events

Paired Peers Twilight Session, 14 February 2019

Critical perspectives on transitions into, through and beyond university: Learning from the Paired Peers project

Date: Thursday 14 February 2019
Time: 16:30-18:30
Venue: Room 2S704, UWE Bristol Frenchay Campus 

Our speaker is Dr Richard Waller (Associate Professor of the Sociology of Education, Department of Education and Childhood, UWE Bristol). The Paired Peers project was a two part longitudinal study (2010-2103 and 2014-2017) funded by the Leverhulme Trust which followed an initial cohort of 90 undergraduates studying at either of the two universities (University of Bristol; UWE Bristol) in one English city (Bristol).

The project matched pairs of students by social class, gender and subject discipline both within and between the two institutions, and followed them from induction to graduation and for several years beyond into their post-university lives and careers.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion of the implications of the project’s findings for the practice of academics and university professional services staff alike. For more details about the talk, visit our blog or view the event flyer.

The event is free for anyone to attend but pre-registration is required. Register here to book your place.
