Mentor Information

We are always keen to hear from anyone who is keen to take on the rewarding role of being a mentor to first year research degree students within your Research Department. Being a mentor will develop your communication and leadership capabilities and all mentors accrue 5 skills development points training points for acting as a student mentor (every research degree student needs to accrue 20 points per year).

For further information please view the Faculty of Population Health Sciences Mentor handbook for 2016/17 academic year.

We normally recruit student mentors in August each year in order to cater for new students who  typically arrive late September. However if you are interested we'd be happy to hear from you at any point during the year and ask you initially contact your Research Department Graduate Tutor. Contact details below:
