Transition to life at university is a very exciting one, but it can also be challenging and demanding at times. Whatever background you arrive from, we want you to make the most of your first year at university and enjoy your time here.
Students 4 Students (S4S) is here to help you settle into University life with advice and support from your fellow students who have been there and got the t-shirt.
Our S4S Mentors are all fully trained, and are current undergraduate students who are studying in the same School as you and, if possible, on the same degree programme.
How does S4S work?
As a new first year student at the University you will be assigned a S4S Mentor. Your S4S Mentor is there to offer advice and support on University life from the perspective of a fellow student, alongside the assistance you get from your Personal Tutor. The S4S Scheme will last for your entire first year – it depends on you, although we would expect you to have the most contact during the first semester.
Your S4S Mentor will allow you to:
- Gain practical advice, encouragement and support
- Learn from the experiences of others within your area of study
- Increase your social and academic confidence
- Make new friends across year groups
- Develop strategies for dealing with life at university
If you have any questions or would like more information email Students 4 Students.
