Abstract
This paper reports on experiences of non-traditional undergraduates who have entered university following a pre-entry preparatory programme. The evidence is drawn from a collaborative European research project on Access and Retention: Experiences of Non-traditional Learners in Higher Education. The project focuses on access, retention and drop-out in higher education institutions in relation to non-traditional students (younger and adults) and the factors which promote or inhibit this (for further details see www.ranlhe.dsw.edu.pl). We present here findings for the Scottish sample to date.
