Student Mentors

Find out about Student Mentors based in the school and how they can help you.

About Student Mentors

Student Mentors are a mixture of current undergraduate and PhD students who have been trained to support other students through the University's peer-led Mentoring Scheme.

What they do

Student Mentors can help you with a range of academic issues, helping you develop your study skills.

Support is provided through one-to-one meetings that can be booked through the School Office.

Mentors share their own experience and skills, along with signposting existing services you might find helpful.

Examples of what Mentors can help with include:

  • revision skills and planning
  • essay structuring
  • help with presentations
  • time management.

Who they are

All our Student Mentors are current students in the School of English. They have been through the same experiences of getting to grips with studying at Sussex, and are passionate about their subject and helping others.

All Student Mentors have been trained and work closely with staff in the School and across the University.

Being a Student Mentor is also a part-time job – they all get paid for the work they do.

Contacting a Student Mentor
