We have two schemes that come under Peer Support: Peer Mentoring and Peer Assisted Learning (PAL). The schemes are student led and specific to their departments. The two schemes are very different and the following pages have been designed for you to find out more.
Peer Mentoring is about students supporting other students throughout their time at the University of Bath.
Peer Mentors can offer practical help and advice to new students, sign posting to support serivices, and sharing their experience of being a student at the Univeristy of Bath.
Peer Mentees can be assured that the mentoring environment is safe, informal and confidential.

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)
Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) is academic based and is about students working together to get a deeper understanding of their course material and to develop the study skills necessary to succeed on their course.
PAL Leaders are older students from a particular course who are responsible for facilitating the study session. PAL Leaders can help students to make the most out of their learning.
PAL Participants can be assured that the study sessions are colaborative, informal and open to anyone regardless of academic ability.
