Peer mentoring is a great way to settle into and make the most of university life.

What is a peer mentor? 

Mentors are established students who share their skills and knowledge on everything from how to make the most of tutorials, to recommending local takeaways. Our established peer mentoring scheme means that students across all year groups contribute to making our department a supportive and friendly place to study. 

Why have a peer mentor? 

Starting university and your first assignments can be daunting. A peer mentor will offer you a friendly face and ear, a voice of experience and insider tips, and a guide to sources of support. You may well wish to become a peer mentor yourself when you get to second year - it’s a great addition to any CV.  

Who will my peer mentor be?

We will match you to a second year or finalist with a course as close to yours as possible at the start of the academic year.

I expected someone who would be there to guide you when needed, someone who you could ask questions to about life in Nottingham or your course...

I had a really nice peer mentor who seemed really open to hearing any questions I had.
