Life at university is exciting but can also be challenging - remember you are not alone - you are joining a diverse Post Graduate student community!

The Postgraduate Peer Support Scheme (PSS) will give you the opportunity to interact with fellow students, share experiences and gain support, advice and help on all aspects of your student life from your peers. 

All PGT and PGR students will automatically be enrolled in an organisation in MyAberdeen. This space will be student led, providing you with a relaxed and informal environment to have discussions and ask questions that you may not want to engage with a member of staff about, whether it is in relation to studying, transition to post graduate studies, life in Aberdeen or joining clubs and societies. 

The Scheme also gives you access to exclusive workshops designed for PG students, which will help to enhance your communication, leadership and coaching skills.

All PG students are encouraged to actively participate in the PSS during their studies. It is through the development of meaningful, two-way interactions that peer support works. Each student has something to offer - talking about your experiences and share advice that work for you can help you and others to get the most out of their student life.

Pastoral support and guidance will be provided for PGT and PGR students through your School. Find out more here
