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 on a postgraduate course that commenced in January 2022 or undergraduate 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 will the support be provided?
This support will take place through a mixture of in person, through email and 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.
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.
