Abstract

This blog addresses the impact that Covid-19 is having on higher education students. It outlines some of the potential challenges associated with the Covid-19 lockdown and provides some practical advice to support students with the multiple transitions that they are currently experiencing. Transition is an ongoing process which involves adaptations to different contexts and changes in interpersonal relationships (Jindal-Snape, 2010). In line with Multiple and Multi-dimensional Transitions (MMT) theory (Jindal-Snape, 2016) we conceptualise transitions as multiple and synchronous rather than linear and sequential. In addition, transitions not only impact upon individuals, but also on their families (Jindal-Snape & Ingram, 2013), their friends (Rienties & Nolan, 2014) and others that they are connected to.
