What can a mentor help with?

With their knowledge and experience, a mentor can provide a different perspective on your time at university.

- It’s helpful because mentors have shared the same experiences and will have dealt with similar issues which will enable them to signpost you to the correct support or guidance services

- Mentors will have a positive approach and will help you to build confidence when dealing with new experiences

- They can tell you more about the University and the wonderful city of Liverpool.

Mentors will:

- hold virtual drop-in sessions

- deliver general wellbeing sessions

- they will also be available via Handshake to answer any queries you might have, just send them a quick message!

Some of the things they might be able to help you with include:

- where to find local amenities such as the nearest doctors, shops, cafés, nightlife

- some general information on your course or University as a whole

- useful hacks for time management, routine and general wellbeing – basically, hacks to help you keep on top of things.


Peer Mentor

September 2019 - May 2020 Liverpool, England
“Created a sense of involvement with the university and campus. Also gave me the opportunity to meet lots of other students from different subject areas and years that I would not have met if it wasn't for the scheme. Also, a great opportunity to feel as though you are making a difference to the everyday running of the university and the student's wellbeing. ”

Peer Mentor

September 2019 Liverpool, England
“I was able to get involved with many other mentors and students, allowing for the opportunity to help those who needed it, whilst giving back to the university that I have gained so much from. Being able to meet new people, assist with people's problems and encourage growth in the scheme, was all very valuable and rewarding.”
