Abstract

As higher education practitioners, we put in every effort to motivate and engage our students in their learning process. This qualitative research examined students’ understanding of academic success. It was aimed at gaining an understanding of their perspective on how teaching activities can be tailored to support them through the process of reaching this goal.

Thematic analysis of the collected data highlighted the need for personal development training, alongside the delivery of subject content, to be integrated within their programme of studies. This presentation is aimed at stimulating discussion and brainstorming of ideas around good practice in this regard.
