Peer Mentoring

Learner Development Service

The peer mentoring scheme has been set up by the Disability Service and the Widening Participation team to offer all prospective and first year students who have a disability, health condition or dyslexia the opportunity to have a student mentor. The mentor will be able to help new students to MMU make the transition into university and through the first year of their studies. The Mentor can offer practical advice and support, based on their own experiences of studying at MMU and knowledge of university and local services. It is the job of the mentor to offer advice within their capacity or to signpost to other services as appropriate. The mentee can contact their mentor through an online e-mentoring website called Bright Links and face-to-face at regular group meetings and social events.
