About this book

The experience of higher education in the UK has become an increasingly common phenomenon in the 21st century. This book explores the emotional and moral significance of the relationships young women develop at university, such as friends, family and housemates, by using a seven-year qualitative longitudinal study of the transitional period.

Reviews

“In the book Finn develops a ‘relational perspective’ … which brings into the foreground of analysis young women’s personal worlds … . the book would make a worthwhile read for postgraduate students, doctoral students and early career researchers seeking to learn more about the realities (and feasibility) of conducting QL projects as a sole researcher. … would be suitable for a wide audience, ranging from undergraduate students through to academics working within the fields of gender, sociology and HE.” (Lauren Stentiford, Gender and Education, 2016)
