Peer mentoring is a flexible and confidential service, where current students provide support to other Christ Church students. As a peer mentor, you will be volunteering to offer support to new students enabling them to manage their transition into University life and during other times when situations may seem challenging.

Current students are able to volunteer to take on one of two different Peer Mentoring roles based on your preference and experience which include:

  • Pre-arrival Peer Mentor (helping new students before they start their studies at the University).
  • Pastoral Peer Mentor (helping students who are already studying at the University).

What are the benefits

Our previous mentors say that being a mentor has:

  • Enhanced their personal and inter-personal skills
  • Developed transferable skills for the workplace
  • Improved their employability
  • Improved their academic skills
  • Developed their self-esteem and confidence
  • Greatly increased their Christ Church experience
