Adjusting to university life can be overwhelming for any first year student. We want to help first year students triumph over the academic and personal challenges they may face. CTL invites all first year students to take part in the Academic Peer Mentor Programme. Trained senior students, or mentors, build a personal relationship with their designated group of first year students by meeting twice a week for about an hour. In these sessions the mentor introduces the group to university life, assists with academic work and directs these students to the resources they need. To get a mentor, fill out an application form in Building 13, Room SL309. CTL will match you with a suitable mentor in the same study field.
