Peer Mentoring


Become a Peer Mentor for the 2023/24 Academic Year

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 are currently recruting Mentors for the 2023/24 academic year, the scheme is open to all undergradaute students, other than those studying in School of Medicine, please get in touch directly with your school for further details of similar support schemes that they maybe running.  

Through been a Peer Mentor you will gain a number of transferable skills. These could include: problem solving, peer support and interpersonal skills. In addition you receive formal recognition for your work while also getting that warm, fuzzy feeling you get from helping and supporting new students. To become a Mentor all you are required to be is a returning student in the 2023/24 academic year, to register your interest click here or/and find out more information on the role by clicking here

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.
