Peer mentoring is all about students supporting other students. As adjusting to a new life at university can get quite overwhelming, it is nice to get help from someone who has already walked the path. Therefore, second-year students and beyond are more than perfect go-to for advice mentors, as they have already been through the same experiences.

Information for academics
It is important to note that Peer Mentors are neither career advisors nor private counsellors, however, they can direct their Mentees to proper services accordingly.
Peer Mentors receive general training on a range of issues they may be faced with and support is available to them throughout the period of mentoring.
