What is APM?
Academic Peer Mentoring is a voluntary scheme which is flexible, confidential, and fits around your availability and preferences. Mentors are specially trained 2nd or 3rd year students, and support mentees with the specific study skills and academic requirements of their course.
Academic Peer Mentoring is a partnership between SLAS and individual schools and divisions. If you are interested in taking part or would like to find out more, please contact the Student Learning Advisory Service email@example.com.
