Abstract

This study is intended to improve our understanding of the challenges facing mature-age male undergraduates as they adapt to university study with a view to reducing attrition. On commencement, we identified three specific program goals:
 to review the literature on mature-age students with a particular focus on men,
 to develop a more robust understanding mature-age men’s experience of transition through university and their adaptation to university study,
 to develop a series of research questions, which are informed by a new model of transition and which will be used as the foundation for further study.
