Transition from school to university/college life is one of the most challenging events in a student’s life. When new students enter an institution, they come with diverse thoughts, backgrounds and preparations. They come into a new unfamiliar environment, and most of them have little knowledge of a university/ college. An important task, therefore, is to welcome new students to Higher Education and prepare them for their new role. Currently, precious little is done by most institutions, except for an orientation Programme lasting a couple of days. Student Induction is designed to help in the whole process. Therefore, it should be taken seriously, and as something more than the mere orientation Programme.
