EFYE Conference


Welcome to the website for the European First Year Experience (EFYE) 2014 Conference which will take place from Monday 9 June until Wednesday 11 June 2014.

The EFYE Conference is hosted by Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, England, building on a rich history of conferences in the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland.

There will be two main themes this year:

The student lifecycle

  • How do we prepare students for their new lives at university?
  • How do we best deliver new students' inductions?
  • How do we help students to make the transition through the year?
  • How do we prepare students for subsequent studies?

Building a first year experience for international students

  • With increasing opportunities to study around the world, how do we build a first year experience to suit students studying beyond the borders of their home country?
