Academic Peer Mentoring is a student success partnership between the Student Learning Advisory Service (SLAS) and participating academic schools and divisions.

Schools/divisions promote the scheme to students whilst SLAS provides training and on-going support for mentors, and resources and guidance for mentees. 

Mentors provide an informal induction to the academic expectations of the course, as well as supporting stage one students with the development of specific study skills and academic confidence.  

APM has proven to improve both mentor and mentee retention and attainment, to build communities of learning, and to develop key academic and employability skills. 

The scheme is flexible and can be run according to the school/division’s requirements in terms of recruitment, format and schedule.
