Every undergraduate student is assigned a peer mentor to help you settle in during your first year. Your mentor will help you find support services, give you informal advice, and help you navigate your way around campus and the city, sharing their own experiences along the way.
Your mentor will be studying the same course as you or something similar. They will tell you more about the department and be a constant support throughout your first year. All peer mentors have been trained and are supported by The SU (our students’ union) and your department.
Your peer mentor will get in touch with you at the start of the year. You can also meet them at a departmental social during Welcome Week or Week 1.
