Student Mentors

Find out about Student Mentors in the department of Engineering and Design and how they can help you.

About Student Mentors

The Mentoring Scheme provides you with support on a range of academic issues. Mentors can help with big and small problems. The scheme allows you to discuss difficulties and develop skills specific to engineering.

Mentors are students themselves, both undergraduate and postgraduate. They have been through the worries and difficulties of studying and are here to share their insight and skills with other students. Mentors are trained and are paid for their work. Engineering student mentors are current engineering students.

What they can help with

Student Mentors can assist with the following:

  • essay structuring
  • preparing lab reports
  • advice on texts and reading lists
  • revision skills and planning
  • specific questions
  • confidence and work worries
  • time management
  • help with presentations
  • computing and the web.

How to get help from a Student Mentor

The following students have been appointed to act as mentors to lower year undergraduates (Foundation, year 1 and year 2).

They run drop-in consultations (detailed below) and welcome requests for individual mentoring.

Only use their email addresses to set up an appointment. If you have problems with your studies you must discuss those at a face-to-face meeting.
