From freshers’ week to finals: understanding LGBT+ perspectives on, and experiences of, higher education

Sheffield Hallam University recently published a report on their #FreshersToFinals project. The project explored LGBT people’s experiences of and thoughts about higher education and the student journey.

The project aimed to:

  • raise public awareness of potential issues experienced by LGBT students and those considering entering higher education;
  • increase practitioner and institutional awareness about LGBT students’ potential needs;
  • identify any evidence gaps in the field;
  • build and strengthen relationships with and between relevant organisations in the higher education and LGBT sectors.
