Second year students are selected to act as peer mentors for all new first year students.
Mentors are training through workshops on mentoring, talks from Students Union and Student Support. Mentors are required to contact mentees on a weekly basis to provide social rather than academic support. Mentors will plan activities to engage with mentees and will work together with other mentors in other degree programs.
The student mentor will complete a PowerPoint presentation, reflecting on their experience as a mentor, including training, successes and challenges, and reflecting on their own personal development through the program.
Students will be expected to commit to at least one hour per week for 30 weeks which includes:
Face to face meetings
