(#FreshersToFinals) From freshers’ week to finals: Understanding LGBT+ perspectives on, and experiences of, higher education

There is a lack of (UK) evidence exploring lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) perspectives within, and about, higher education. The #FreshersToFinals project was undertaken by Sheffield Hallam University to address this gap. The project consisted of two elements: a literature review, followed by a small consultation with LGBT+ students, young people and staff members working with them. Seven overarching themes were identified in the data, and are explored in the final report. The report was launched at a one-day conference entitled Supporting LGBTQ students at university at Sheffield Hallam University on Friday 24th July 2015.
