Be a Mentor

Here's a brief overview of what it's like to be a mentor:

  • Before your mentee arrives at University - Starting from August, you will communicate by email with students before they arrive at Chester, answer questions and share your experiences of your first days.
  • After your mentee arrives at University - Once new students arrive at Chester, what happens next is a little more up to you. Continue to contact students by email or arrange to meet for a coffee, or at another convenient place. The key is to develop an effective relationship with students to help them find their feet at Chester.

You will receive expert training, skills development, on-going support from our dedicated mentoring team and plenty of free merchandise. Log volunteering hours towards the University’s UCV Awards scheme and collect points for the Chester Difference Award.
