Preparedness for university life

Comparing the responses of Cohort 8 students at the

Follow-up survey with their responses at the Baseline

survey shows that nearly half (46%) felt more prepared

about possibly living away from home as a result of

participation in the RO programme, while 44% felt more

prepared for managing their finances, 37% felt more

prepared about university life in general, and 35% felt

more prepared about getting used to a new university

campus or place of study (Figure 3).
