Aim Previously we reported on focus group research which explored the level 4 (year 1) student experience of the Research-informed Teaching experience (RiTe). This article discusses follow up research with a new student cohort. Method An online questionnaire was used to explore the level 4 student cohort experience of RiTe. A Multi-method approach was taken to analyse the data, identify themes and link questionnaire findings with those from the focus group research. Results A 54% (27/50) response rate was achieved. Students found RiTe to be a positive experience and there was strong agreement that it had increased their knowledge of research methods and understanding of key areas of practice. Conclusions Results from the questionnaire supported the focus group findings. One of the key factors in the success of RiTe was that of collaborative learning. This was achieved by the students undertaking an inquiry and situated approach to learning within small groups.
