Caroline is currently investigating the experience of non-traditional student engagement for first year Undergraduate students, within three of the top Highly Engaging Universities in the country. Particular focus is drawn upon 'student-led' initiatives and how they can assist with enhancing student engagement throughout their first academic year within Higher Education.  Student intentions to persist with Higher Education are also of particular interest and how the Student Experience of engagement can be used to assist with increasing retention and success for this category of students through future policy and pedagogy. Global student engagement is also of interest and how engagement is perceived and experiences in different countries and contexts within Higher Education.
