Looking at the entire RO population from Cohort 1 onwards,

Figure 2 shows that the greatest impact of RO on knowledge

and understanding of university life was on ability to

reference academic sources; 42% of students said that

RO had improved this a lot and 35% said RO had improved

it quite a lot. This was followed by:

l

Understanding of what a RIU is (33% said a lot and 41%

quite a lot);

l

Students’ study skills (30% said a lot and 41% quite

a lot); and

l

Knowledge about the UCAS application process (31%

said a lot and 37% said quite a lot).
