Transitions West Midlands (TWM) is a collaborative project, funded by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), that brings together staff and students from a group of institutions (further and higher education) who have been working together for the past four years through the West Midlands Post '92 Research Forum.
TWM aims to offer new insights into the first-hand experiences of students making the move or preparing to make the move from Further Education (FE) to Higher Education (HE) within the West Midlands region. The case study approach has enabled us to explore students' expectations of, and reflections on, transition as they move within and between the four participating institutions.
The project was driven by three key questions:
 How do prospective students from under-represented groups in HE understand/perceive their support needs prior to transition?
 How do HE students from under-represented groups self-define the enablers and barriers to effective transition?
 How do HE and FE institutions best support students from under-represented groups as they progress through the various stages of transition from FE to HE?
