SILVA, Rita Santos  e  NASCIMENTO, Inês. Over 23-year-old students in Psychology: Motivations and integration process. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.1, pp. 37-47. ISSN 1984-7270.

This research aimed at analyzing and understanding the admission process to higher education, with over 23-year-old students, seeking to highlight determinant factors/dimensions underpinning those processes. Eighteen interviews were performed with students from the 1st and 2nd grades of the Master in Psychology Degree of the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Porto (over 23 years; n = 9; regular access; n = 9). The results indicated the existence of a constellation of motivational factors originating their wish to attend higher education, besides a positive perception about their integration process, as well as a proactive attitude in the identification of practices to be reformulated and implemented by the institution, in order to provide their students means to achieve both personal and career success.

Palavras-chave : college students; over 23-year-old higher education; motivation; integration.
