Helping students transition to university

UCL provides incoming first-year students with pastoral and academic support via Transition Mentors. These mentors are higher year undergraduates in the same department who are trained to help the first years to adjust to university life, particularly in the first term but also throughout the first year.

The Transition website has a suite of resources to assist students and mentors in this process. It is helpful for Personal Tutors to be aware of the difficulties students can have adjusting to life at UCL, the resources offered by the Transition Programme and for them to refer these to their tutees when appropriate.
