Today we launched Student Life Mentoring recruitment for the 2016/17 year – which will be our 10th year of Mentoring!!
Our website contains lots of information about how the roles work, and their interactions with our first year students at Surrey (UG and PG). We currently employ 55 mentors to visit our 4,000 first year students in the residences.
An encouraging quote from one of our current mentors: “I still remember my Student Life Mentor from first year and what a great service the scheme provides new students. It was nice to get a regular weekly visit from a friendly face who had survived first year, could pass on a range of advice about settling into the course and my studies, the Union, events on campus and in Guildford and answer any questions I had.”
