The Complex Trajectories Project focuses on understanding the complex trajectories of students at university and supporting those who navigate them.
In the practical domain, the project aims to contribute to the establishment of a system of regular monitoring of student trajectories in order to adjust the development of policies
supporting these trajectories at different levels of the system and university institutions.
Students can shift, pause, combine their studies, move between
different degree programs or different modalities (distance and face-to-face), maybe building a complex, but successful, trajectory. Universities can contribute to complex trajectories
being more likely to end successfully.
The project has three main parts, plus an area dedicated to dissemination, which includes the objective of generating or consolidating a network in each territory of the consortium
The first part is where we aim to end up developing a methodology for analysing student trajectories that is transferable to other higher education contexts. To achieve this result, we
first try to understand and compare the trajectories of students in the diversity of universities we analyse. We focus our attention on complex trajectories, especially those that transit
from one face-to-face institution (or program) to another at a distance (or vice versa), and in the disadvantaged profiles (by reason of social origin, migrant background, geographical,
