ABSTRACT

The three or four years of an undergraduate degree can be an important period of self-discovery and growth for many students: living away from home for the first time, building new friendships, committing to their chosen subject, learning how to self-manage time and workload, discovering new interests and managing financial pressures. Student life presents a rich tapestry of experiences, opportunities and challenges, and it should be no surprise that motivation, confidence, emotion, anxieties and other dynamic facets of the individuals’ make-up go through constant flux over the period of their course.
