RITAL 2017 will be hosted by the First Year Experience and Student Learning Unit: Fundani CHED. The focus of the 2017 conference is on:

Transitioning In and Transitioning Out: The Context of Transforming HE landscape

RITAL 2017 Conference is both an empirical and intellectual platform created by our universities to focus our attention on a very complex and sensitive question of ‘Student Transitions’ in the context of vocational higher education in South Africa. It is believed that new students in higher education are unable to draw upon the social networks of support, thus making transition more difficult (Leese, 2010). An improved transition can potentially enable students to be independent and self-directed. Increased self-reliance must be made one of the aims of a successful transition from school to higher education (Beaumont, Moscrop & Canning, 2016).
