Peer Support is all about students supporting other students.

Whether you want support settling into University life, are feeling homesick or lonely, or need some additional study support from one of our Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) sessions, your Peer Mentors and PAL Leaders are here to help!

Our schemes create student-led, confidential and informal spaces for students to get support from each other. Schemes are led by students on your course, run in your department and supported by The SU to help you get the most out of your time at Bath.

Be a Part of It

Becoming a Peer Mentor or a PAL Leader is a great way to develop your CV, boost your confidence and make a difference to your fellow students. You can also accredit your time as a mentor or leader through the Bath Award, Doctoral Skills Programme and other volunteer recognition schemes. We are currently recruiting for a number of roles within Peer Support and we'd love to hear from you.
