Studiosity Student Connect Student Information

This service enables first year students to seek discipline specific support at course and/or module level from final year student mentors.


First Year Undergraduate Student Mentees

A new ‘Studiosity Student Connect’ Peer Mentoring Service is available for all first year undergraduate students.

This service enables first year students to seek discipline specific support at course and/or module level from final year student mentors who are on the same course or similar course and/or who have completed the same modules as them.

This service operates on a similar platform to the existing Studiosity ‘Writing Feedback’ service but is different in that the students who need help, request help from their peers.

It provides an additional route for first year students to seek support.

It complements other mentoring services that are already offered to students, such as, the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) scheme that is available for some programmes, buddy schemes and the Studiosity Service that offers on-demand study help from subject specialists to all students.

Potential benefits for first year mentees

How to access the Service

  • It is hoped the service will be available from the 20th September 2021 via Blackboard from 11.00 am to 11.00 pm daily.
  • If a student who completed your programme is not available when you request help you will be matched to another student who may be able to help.  If they cannot help they will be able to refer you to some else.
  • Further information will be posted here about how to access the service at the beginning of term so please come back here for details.

Studiosity Student Mentors

Currently all students who will be final year undergraduate students in 2021/22 have been invited to apply to become a Peer Mentor.  Some additional cohorts of students may also have been invited to apply via course directors for some programmes.

See application information for further details.

It is anticipated that training for mentors will commence during welcome week (13th September 2021) and will be available as required from that date.
