In this chapter Devis-Rozental and Barron explore the transition to university presenting findings from a small study exploring this transition with current students and staff in a UK institution. It then introduces ME@BU, the online tool for pre arrival students stemming from this research project, and its evaluation based on a large survey carried out to gauge its efficacy. In the second part of the chapter findings from a survey to staff exploring their views of the induction process are presented. In this way, the chapter provides various perspectives regarding this important transition, concluding that to make this transition easier and meaningful to students, everyone within the university must gain a sense of ownership to support students, each in their own role.
