Become a Peer Supporter
If you would like to learn new skills, support your fellow students, and make new friends, you may be interested in training as a Peer Supporter.
The training is provided by the University’s Counselling Service and requires a commitment to an evening training schedule but, as you can see from the comments from students below, it is enjoyable and worthwhile.
Please submit applications to the Academic Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 22 September 2017.
You must be starting a course of study of at least two years to be eligible.
