As the second term is well underway, Peer Support is now recruiting for mentors for the next academic year. The Peer Mentor scheme offers first years support and advice from students who have been in the same position as them. Freshers are assigned a mentor who is there to help them settle into university life and is available as a point of contact throughout the year. Becoming a mentor is a great way to get more involved in the department, and is incredibly rewarding – it looks good on your CV too. If you are interested, please email Hanna ( with your name, student ID, course, and year of study by Saturday, March 25. Please direct any questions you have about the training session you will need to attend to Hanna too. Existing mentors need not attend another training session, but please email if you would like to continue in your role.

The History peer mentors will organising a movie night before the end of term, so keep an eye out on the HistSoc Facebook page for more information!

On another note, a special shout-out must go out to the Classics and Ancient History team who have made it to the Peer Support University Challenge final – we wish them the best of luck!

And, finally, the annual Peer Support celebration will be held on Thursday, May 4 – so save the date!
