Peer Support is all about students supporting other students.
Schemes are student led and are run within particular courses and departments.
The Students' Union provides support for departments where schemes are in place, which includes recruiting and training volunteers.
First year students will be given a Peer Mentor when they join the University. Peer Mentors are there to share their own experiences of their first year and to help with any concerns or worries that may arise. Support is generally available from the start of the year until the end.
On some courses you may find a PAL session on your timetable. PAL is a study group which is run by trained older students. PAL helps students to go over lecture material and is an opportunity to work with other students on your course. On some courses we even use PAL to support your placement year.
Workshops run throughout the year on various topics and each year two PAL Leaders are able to represent the university at the National PAL Leader Conference which is a great opportunity to meet other students in similar roles, develop skills and attend bespoke training sessions.
