Gaining support from someone who has already been through this stage of university life has had such a positive impact on me.




Getting involved with Peer Support allows you to gain support and advice from students in higher year groups whilst exploring different topics and collaborating with your peers.

Depending on the programme, you could be:

  • attending activity-based peer learning sessions around academic topics within your discipline

  • gaining support as you settle in to University

  • receiving online support before and during your arrival
