Remember all the things you wanted to know when you first started university? Remember the lost feeling? If you would like to share your experience and help first year students settle in, then being a peer mentor is the job for you!

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.

There has never been a better time to sign up for post graduate study at Essex. We have two new fantastic support and funding schemes that could make your Masters course cheaper and give you in roads to paid work placements.

Both the Mentoring for Progression and Knowledge Exchange Placement schemes are aimed at students signing up for post graduate study in 2014-15.

Mentoring for Progression

There are 100 places available on our Mentoring for Progression scheme. You will be awarded a £5,000 reduction in your tuition fees in return for acting as a mentor to a group of final-year undergraduates.

Knowledge Exchange Placements

With our Knowledge Exchange Placements, you can combine six months of intensive postgraduate tuition with a six month Knowledge Exchange Project. You will work with an employer on a three month paid placement, for which you will receive up to £3,000

Places are limited, so take a look at our Postgraduate Support Scheme website now to read more and have your questions answered.
