We are continuing to trial our online peer mentor scheme for first year undergraduate students.
Second, third and final year students in the School have volunteered to be your Peer Mentors. A Peer Mentor is another student in the School with experience of the University who can offer practical advice and information about being a student here at Essex, and point you in the right direction to the relevant student services.
You might be feeling confused about where to find things on campus, how to use the library, who's who in your school, or how to get to know other students. No matter whether your question is big or small, your Peer Mentors will be happy to help you. Or, you might just feel like having a chat with someone who's had experience of adjusting to university life and who can give you tips about how to settle in.
Key features of the HHS peer mentoring scheme are that:
- You can choose which mentor you want to contact at any point within your first year.
- You can access the scheme without needing to be on campus, which is ideal if you are part time or away on practice placement
