Many universities recruit students to engineering awards from diverse academic backgrounds that can include A2-level, Foundation Year, BTEC, and overseas qualifications. While each of these courses will have covered broadly the same curriculum, the depth of understanding displayed by each student will vary widely. Such diversity requires strategies that are flexible enough to support students who are different in their ability, maturity, enthusiasm and experience. The aim of the workshop is to bring together those with an interest in and experience of the issues involved in this problem and to identify approaches that are effective in helping students from these diverse academic backgrounds to fulfil their potential in the subject.
