UCD Student Adviser Unit
Requirements:No specific requirements - training will be provided.
UCD has over 650 trained Peer Mentors who work to make UCD fun and welcoming for first year students, all of whom have all been assigned a mentor from the same (or similar) programme.
By volunteering for the 2022-23 Peer Mentor programme you'll share your knowledge and insights by drawing on your own experience of starting in UCD. In doing this you'll be helping new students create a sense of belonging within their programme of study and throughout UCD. You'll act as a friendly and approachable point of contact for Trimester 1 and by doing this you'll play a crucial role in introducing new first years to everything UCD has to offer. Peer Mentoring is a great support to incoming students, gives you valuable experience in leadership and communication and is also a great addition to your C.V. Peer Mentors typically (but not always) have a group of 8-10 mentees from the same/similar course as them. All Peer Mentors will receive training prior to beginning their work. Training for 22-23 mentors will be online and in-person
