Peer Mentoring


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.  The scheme is open to all undergradaute students, unless you choose to opt out,  who are starting their course in September 2022, apart from those studying in Medicine and Allied Health School, please get in touch directly with your school for further details of similar support schemes that they maybe running.  

How will the support be provided?

This support will take place through a mixture of in person induction and Meet your Mentor Events and through regular emails and messaging during the first semester. If you haven't already you will receive details of who your Mentor is before the end of the second week of the term.
