Offering students in Years 10-13 short-term academic support and information about university applications and student life from a current student E-Mentor.

What is Ask Bath?

Ask Bath is an online chat service for students in Years 10-13 from widening participation backgrounds. Ask Bath offers academic peer support, information about university applications and insight into life at university. It offers instant messaging for students via a secure platform enabling them to link up with an E-Mentor whenever and where ever they want, for as short or long a time as they like. To be eligible to join the programme students will need to meet one or more of our Widening Participation criteria.

How does it work?

Our E-Mentors can give Ask Bath students some short-term academic support in many different subjects that they have studied themselves, as well as providing information and guidance about university, the applications process and student life.

  • Students will choose their own E-Mentor based on the subject that they need help with or to ask about university life.
  • The E-Mentor will guide the student with questions about homework, the relevant academic subject or with information about university applications and what it's like to study at university.
  • If the student would like help with a different academic subject, they can request to be unmatched and then get help from an E-Mentor in the different subject.
  • The match with an E-Mentor is a short-term arrangement (up to 6-8 weeks during which students work with their E-Mentor on their chosen mentoring goals). Mentoring matches will expire after a short period of inactivity.
