If you think back to when you first came to University, you might remember how scary moving to London and the next stage of your life was. Having a senior student – someone to ask what to expect from their first year, to give advice on how to get involved with clubs and societies, the best places to eat or go out, how much coursework to expect, or just someone to talk to if they are feeling – can make a massive difference!
No skills, knowledge or experience is required to be part of Mums & Dads, just an enthusiasm to help people and meet new people! You will be able to choose or design activities with support from your Dep Soc, and carry out the role based around your commitments.
Please note that the Mums & Dads scheme is currently only for Undergraduate students. If you are a PhD student, you can have a look at the Union-supported Doctoral Student Coaching Programme that is run by the Graduate School. We are hoping to make the Mums & Dads scheme accessible to more student populations in the near future.
Sign ups for both new students and Mums and Dads have now closed. If you would still like to be involved please email your Dep Soc for more information.
