There are more students than ever before enrolled in University, however, research focusing on the transition out of university is very limited. This study begins to tell the story of students'' experience of transition from university into the real world. This study uses a phenomenological approach to explore the transition of three men and three women in the year following their graduation. Narratives and individual interviews were used to capture participant experiences and identify common themes. Results highlighted the loss of participants'' student role as a significant feature of the transition experience, touching various aspects of their experience post-graduation. Several theme emerged, including: mixed emotions, first Fall out, planfulness, moving on, growing up, gaining meaningful employment, reality check, financial concerns, changing social network, and the need for validation. One of the most pronounced themes was participants'' negative reflections on their degree and it''s value in the real world.
