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.

We can support you ONLINE

This support will take place over email and through messaging, we will also be facilitating video calls and other virtual events to ensure Mentees receive well rounded support from their Mentor and the scheme. The Peer Mentoring team aim to deliver some face-to-face support and events this year ensuring all safety precautions are taken.

How do Mentors help their Mentees?

  • Providing a warm & friendly welcome straight away, someone students can ask questions about university life.
  • Specific support and signposting if students have any difficulties during their first year.
