“A mentor is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”

—John C. Crosby


Mentors are upper-year students who are trained to help other students develop helpful and effective ways of approaching their studies.

Student mentors understand the challenges of life at university and offer to support you to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

They offer one-on-one meetings, study groups, and workshops. Mentors support students by helping them to:

  • Develop effective learning strategies and study techniques;
  • Strengthen their personal motivation;
  • Maintain their academic achievement;
  • Set their academic goals;
  • Use their time and manage their stress effectively.
