FASS Peer Mentoring Program

The  Arts and Social Sciences Peer Mentoring program is designed for students joining the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in 2017. Degrees you might be studying include: Media, Education, Criminology, Arts, International Studies, Music, Social Work, and Social Research and Policy.

Program Description

The Peer Mentoring Program in Arts and Social Sciences links senior students to groups of first-year students to support and encourage you, and give you an opportunity to meet other new students and get to know the who, what, where and how of uni life.
Mentors are waiting to meet you. Mentors host get-togethers, share their knowledge at face-to-face meetings, on our discussion board, and  keep you updated with must-know information and point you in the right direction.

"The Peer Mentoring Program has helped me to adapt to the university life, connecting me with other people doing the same course. The mentor has been very helpful in providing relevant information regarding the course and information every 1st year student needs to know." (previous Mentee)
