One-to-one support for every student in the Coventry University Group

The Student Peer Mentoring Programme is all about connection and helping support you in your journey through higher education. When you start your course, you'll have the opportunity to connect to a more experienced student from your course or school, a student from a similar walk of life, or both!

We're always on the lookout for new mentors to support our wider community, so if you're an experienced student, read on to see how you might become a mentor yourself.

Get a Mentor

Browse programmes to find the perfect mentor for you

Get advice and support from someone who’s been there before with our peer mentoring platform. You can ask questions and share experiences of university or life in general. For example, you can find out things like "Where's the best coffee on campus or the best places to study?" through to finding out top tips on managing timetables and coursework.

We are proud of our diverse and friendly student community and have trained student mentors from all walks of life and from all over the world!
