Abstract

Pre-entry information and transitional support are identified as key factors promoting student success and retention, encouraging a pro-active approach to entry into Higher Education. Furthermore the Equality Act, in terms of anticipatory duty, emphasises this. However, some student groups studying for professional degrees, such as physiotherapy, need additional information in terms of responsibilities related with fitness to practise. These drivers initiated the development of the Informed Study Project (ISP), a bespoke on-line self-evaluation of fitness to practise. The ISP has successfully been embedded into the admissions process for BSc (Hons) physiotherapy students for 7 years. Evaluation using a Bristol Online Survey for the most recent cohort (respondents = 34) showed that 100% of students felt that the material was well presented and useful; 79% stated it positively affected the likelihood of them choosing to study physiotherapy at Cardiff University; 100% stated that they felt excited about studying at Cardiff.
