About the scheme

The peer mentoring scheme is about helping new students settle in to life at The University of Leicester through peer to peer support. 

Students in their second year or beyond act as mentors, as they are in the perfect position to offer advice having already walked in the same shoes.

How do Mentors help their Mentees?

  • Providing warm and friendly information straight away, so new students know what is happening on or around campus and further afield in Leicester.

  • Hints and tips on how to make the most of their student experience.

  • Specific support and signposting if they have any difficulties during their first year.
  • Opportunities to meet up and make new friends.

For more information see Information for Mentees.

Why should I become a Mentor?

  • Use your knowledge and experience to help new students realise how exciting and enriching University life can be here at Leicester.

  • Become a vital component in the transition period for new students, whilst gaining recognised, HEAR accredited transferable skills.

  • Pass on hints and tips about the best places to eat, visit, explore or study and where to find interesting things to do.
  • Make a difference in other peoples’ lives.
