Specialist Mentoring

What is it?

Specialist mentoring is available to students with an AS diagnosis.

Many students find the mentoring service really valuable in ensuring they thrive at university.

Generally students meet with their mentor on a regular basis throughout the academic year.

A mentor can

  • Listen to your concerns and questions
  • Help with transition to University
  • Assist you in developing strategies to cope with difficult situations
  • Help liaise with tutors and other university departments
  • Consider perspectives on situations and help you think these through together with possible outcomes
  • Help with planning and organisation
  • Support you in managing your whole student experiences, academic, social and in relation to your well-being

    Who pays for the mentoring?

    You are likely to be funded for specialist mentoring through Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) . DSA is a grant and is not repayable. If you have not applied for DSA or are in the process of applying when you come to university please speak to Disability Services about how to arrange mentoring.

    If you are an EU or international student you will not be eligible for DSA funding but please contact us and we will arrange mentoring for you.

    How do I set up my mentoring sessions?

    Please contact Disability Services for help with setting up your mentoring sessions.
