Benefits of mentoring
Starting university is an exciting yet challenging time – meeting new people and making friends, learning new skills and dealing with new pressures. Even the simplest things like finding your way around campus can be a big task. Who knows uni life better than anyone else? Other students of course! That's why student mentors make a huge difference.
What is a student mentor?
Student mentors volunteer their time to help you settle in during your first semester. Your student mentor will be a student who has completed first year. They can answer your questions and help you settle into university life – from general study tips and great places to eat to where to go if you need support.
Mentoring programmes at UC
UC Mentoring Programme
Our student mentors can help you make a successful start to your studies. When you join the programme, you will be matched with a UC Mentor who is studying similar subjects or has similar interests to you. Your mentor will help you to access the services on campus and can be someone you can talk to about your experiences and studies.
Our mentors have a range of backgrounds from first in family to study at uni, to PhD, domestic and international. Sign up for a friendly mentor today.
