Peer Support

Peer Support is about students supporting other students.


Group of students studying.


There are two Peer Support schemes for students to get involved with at the University of Bath: Peer Mentoring and Peer Assisted Learning (PAL).

Peer Mentoring focuses on settling into university and helping students adjust to university life,  whereas PAL is much more academic focused, supporting students on particular courses or units.

Schemes are student led and discipline specific. The Students' Union provides support for departments where schemes are in place, which includes recruiting and training Peer Mentors and PAL Leaders.
