About Student Mentors

Student Mentors are undergraduate and postgraduate students who have experienced the same worries and difficulties of studying and 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 via email or during drop-in sessions held twice a week.

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

Mentors can help with:

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