MetadataShow full item record
There are no statistics as of the exact numbers of individuals with ADHD attending university in the United Kingdom, however, the fact that universities offer support for these individuals suggest it is prevalent. The aim of this study will be to explore the impact ADHD has on students’ experience of university with a further investigation into any re-occurring themes from childhood. As this study focused on the individuals experiences a thematic analysis was used. The analysis produced three main themes with six sub themes altogether. The results from this study support the previous literature surrounding the impacts of impulsivity on risk behaviours and friendships also, inattentiveness surrounding time management. Re-occurring themes were highlighted among individual experiences of friendships. Recommendations for future research include larger participant samples and a focus on hyperactivity impact on social and academic tasks.
