In Western countries, governments continue to emphasise social inclusion in higher education. While access is important in social inclusion, there is a need to broaden the conceptualisation of the student experience to optimise opportunities for the academic achievement of students from diverse backgrounds. Potentially, this includes increased support strategies by both academic and professional staff. In this paper, we discuss the experiences of a group of students from diverse backgrounds in a longitudinal research project that aims to provide insight into how these students succeed in higher education. We focus particularly on students’ comments about their study management to explore the implications of their experiences for academic support.
