It is likely that many of you will have taught undergraduate students who came through the Flinders Foundation Studies Program (FSP). Now in its 36th year, the FSP is one of the oldest enabling programs in Australia. During that time, it has provided a successful alternative pathway into Flinders for thousands of students who might not otherwise have considered university an option. Many of those students have completed their studies and even gone on to complete higher degrees, evidence that the course is a good preparation for university study. We do know, however, that while many FSP students complete their studies, there are those who find the transition to university life difficult.
The Transition Office is currently conducting a review of the FSP to see if there are ways that it can achieve its objectives more effectively. If you have any suggestions regarding improvements to the FSP, feel free to contact Dr Michael Savvas.
