Peer mentoring

All students have access to university support services, however those on some courses will also be able to take part in the peer mentoring scheme. A peer mentor is a second or final year student on your course, who can share their skills and knowledge about studying and living in Nottingham, and support you as you find your feet at uni.

If your course runs a peer mentoring scheme, you will be matched with your mentor during your first week, and you'll be able to meet them, along with your fellow mentees. This information will be sent you via your university email address.
