Abstract

This study investigated the experiences of students on a top-up degree course in the Institute of Sport and Exercise Science. Two students on the current ‘top-up’ were interviewed after having completed a HND at a partner college which revealed some useful insights in relation to their experiences on the degree course.For example, these students noted that as well as greater demands being placed on them at University compared with College, feedback was more relaxed on the HND. The students proposed the notion of a 'move-up' day prior to studying the degree top-up in order to settle students quickly onto their degree course and to smooth a successful transition onto the top- up course.
