Be part of a Mentoring group where current students impart all of their tips and knowledge to new students.
This is an informal support scheme where new students can ask all those initial questions, such as what is a seminar? How long does it take to get from my halls to this lecture theatre? Current students here at Leicester will be able to answer all those queries or be able to tell their Mentees where the best place to get the answer or help they need.
Email will be the first way to contact, but we will be encouraging group meet ups during the first term to put faces to names and share your experiences.
Once you have filled out one of the forms below we can start on matching you based on your home department, shared interests, maybe common languages and any special requests you may have.
Mentors are there to provide a friendly point of contact as you prepare for your University life and during your first year. They will aim to enhance your student experience by giving you all the tips and information they wish they’d have known as a first year!
Sign up here if you are a new student joining the University of Leicester in 2017.
* Please note that the medical school run their own mentoring scheme and you will be assigned a mentor through that department.
Use your knowledge and experience to help new students on your course realise how exciting and enriching University life can be here at Leicester.
You will receive training and support to help you in fulfilling your role as mentor. Become a vital component in the transition period for new students, whilst gaining recognised, HEAR accredited transferable skills.
If you have a specific request regarding your mentee group please enter it in the box provided and we will aim to accommodate this.
Applications to mentor for 2017/18 are now closed. We will be recruiting for 2018/19 early in term two.
