What does a Global Chums Cornwall mentor do?

Your Global Chum mentor is there to help answer any questions you may have before you arrive, and to help you settle into life on campus as quickly as possible. We arrange social activities from the point you arrive on campus, up to the Christmas holidays. For students arriving in January, we also offer the scheme to help you settle into university life quickly, and make the most of your time here in Cornwall.

You will be contacted automatically in late August by your mentor. There is no need to sign up. If you haven’t heard from your mentor by the start of September, please email
