Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring

The University is committed to offering peer mentoring to all undergraduates entering their degree course.

Students chattingPeer mentoring can help students to make a smooth transition to being successfully integrated into the University and their programme through direct access to the advice and support of a more experienced peer during their first term studying at the University.

For mentees the scheme helps smooth their transition into all aspects of university life. For mentors it offers a chance to enhance their employability skills.

Schemes are run at a School or subject level and each scheme has a staff coordinator who supports mentors in their role. Mentoring schemes benefit all students by building a strong school or subject based community. They also provide a great opportunity to build effective partnerships between students and staff.

Further information is available on the Newcastle University Mentors website where mentors can access the mentoring handbook and a number of resources to help run mentor meetings. Staff coordinators can also access resources to help with the running of a scheme in their School or Unit.

The Peer Mentoring Principles and Standards document contains further information about the scheme.
