Full course description
The objective of the mentor scheme is to facilitate personal student-staff contact to answer academic questions. During the first year, the mentor scheme aims to help you become accustomed to university life, cope with new challenges, and navigate the BA Digital Society and the Faculty. The focus is on PBL and developing good study skills. Every student will be assigned a mentor and will be part of a small mentor group with other students that meets regularly throughout the year.
By participating in the mentor scheme, you will:
- Develop skills for making the transition from secondary school to university;
- Improve your study skills;
- Learn about how universities work;
- Learn from the experiences of other students and staff.
