Analysing Student Perceptions Of Transferable Skills Via Undergraduate Degree Programmes

This study is concerned with the value students attribute to transferable skills. The study has three objectives: 1) to assess student’s perceptions of the knowledge and skills acquired during their undergraduate degree programmes; 2) to determine whether differences existed in student’s perceptions of the skills acquired in two distinct, but related awards and 3) to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategies adopted in respect of learning transfer.
