About Student Mentors

Looking to get the best possible experience from your time at Sussex? Why not improve your academic knowledge and university life skills?

Student mentors are employed by the School of Life Sciences to provide academic help to students from their cohorts. They are recruited annually and typically have very strong academic records and references from their Academic Advisors.

If you have questions about anything academic, from study skills to module content or you’re struggling with a particular subject area, you can either drop-in during one of the regular sessions (see when our student mentors are avaliable below) or contact them to make an appointment.

2019/20 mentor schedule

Mentors are available to meet every week in the Robert Whittle Social Space on the 4th Floor of the JMS Building.

Although there is no specific Ecology, Conservation and Environment mentors in 2019/20, ECE students can visit or contact any mentor, especially those studying Zoology or Biology.
