First Year Experience (FYE) grants have been successful in addressing the needs of first year students from low socioeconomic status groups and indigenous students within a framework designed to improve transition, success and retention for all students. In 2017, we are encouraging grant projects in either first or second year subjects that have commencing students coming into the subject. The aim is to introduce practices that support success and retention for both commencing students transitioning from all entry pathways, e.g. school, TAFE, higher education institutions, Insearch and where applicable continuing students transitioning from first to second year.
