Abstract

This article provides interim observations with reference to a three university study into the implications of students' sense of belonging in UK tertiary education. Descriptions related to sense of belonging were recorded via the biographic narrative interpretive method (BNIM) and will be subject to further analysis via this method in later stages of the project. Initial findings include emergent themes and practice-based opportunities to increase students' sense of belonging.
