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.
