One-day transition to university workshops have been successful in enhancing peer networks. This study aimed to influence the transition from a Foundation Degree to a third year Undergraduate Degree programme through the use of peer led workshops. Two 2-hour workshops were planned and delivered by five previous students of the Foundation Degree, all of whom were completing their third year of an Undergraduate Degree. The workshops were delivered to 19current Foundation Degree students. Visual analogue scales exploring students' feelings and knowledge of the third year were administered prior to the first workshop, immediately after the second workshop and three months following the second workshop. Quantitative analyses found that the peer led workshops enhanced learners knowledge regarding course options, the third year project, module options and location of the universities sports science department. There was also a feeling of increased apprehensiveness following the peer led workshops.
