Government agendas seek to widen participation in university education. Reforms of the NHS incorporate a commitment to increase the number of occupational therapists being educated. As a result, the nature of recruitment is changing, with an increasing number of students commencing occupational therapy undergraduate programmes with non-traditional entry qualifications. In response to the apparent difficulty with meeting academic requirements experienced by some of these students, the School of Health Professions & Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Southampton developed an innovative ‘Summer School’ aimed at easing the transition into higher education. Evaluation of participant feedback gathered via questionnaires at two points during their first year indicates the course’s potential for preparing students with non-traditional entry qualifications for study at undergraduate level.
