Welcome To Peer Support

The Peer Support Team within ASSET supports students and staff from across the University in establishing and delivering Peer Support activities.

Peer Support aims to enrich students’ academic studies and university life.  Through creating collaborative communities within disciplines and colleges or by easing the transition to university, Peer Support gives students the opportunity to enhance their educational experience and academic success.

Peer Support has been proven to be beneficial for all involved; the students being mentored, the students leading and organising the sessions, as well as the college or discipline in which the programme operates.  Students (both mentors and mentees) can enhance their academic performance and develop strong transferable attributes to equip them for life beyond university.
