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.
COVID-19 Update to Services
Peer Mentoring and Peer Assisted Learning schemes will take place online for the foreseeable future, including online mentor/mentee meetings, networking events and study sessions. Activities will return to campus when it is safe to do so.
