What is peer mentoring?

Peer Mentors are students who have already spent at least a year studying at the University.

If you sign-up for a mentor you’ll be able to meet them weekly throughout your first semester and ask any questions you may have. Having recently been through their first year at University, mentors remember how it feels and will help to make sure you don’t miss out on anything. For example they can:

  • help you find your way around;
  • help you choose clubs, societies and social activities to get involved in;
  • give tips on coursework and study skills;
  • direct you towards sources of information and support across the University and the Students’ Union.

Peer Assisted Study Sessions

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are study groups for first-years, run by trained students in later years of their course. They provide a friendly and supportive environment in which to discuss and explore aspects of your course through group learning and discussion.

Attendance is voluntary, but if you attend on a regular basis you could adjust quickly to University life; improve your study habits and develop a better understanding of the subject matter of you course.

To find out which subjects are offering PASS and to see the PASS timetable please visit our main PASS pages.
