This paper discusses students’ talk about their expectations and experiences of living and learning at university. Drawing on two qualitative research projects at the University of the West of England, this paper considers how a discursive analysis approach to students talk offers new ways of conceptualising the student experience, namely, the ways in which students draw on and invest in what can be termed, ‘modalities of learning’. The paper will then go on to introduce four key ‘modalities’ and highlight the implications those modalities have for both the theory and practice of teaching and learning.
