Are you joining us at Aston this September? Then get ahead and take advantage of Pre-arrival E-mentoring!
The transition from school, college or work to university is life changing but can also be daunting. At this important time, we are pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity of benefitting from the Aston Pre-arrival E-Mentoring programme.
You can benefit from the experience of someone who remembers how it feels starting at University, perhaps even moving to a new city or country, and knows the questions they had when they were in your position. Our mentors are current Aston students who will communicate with you via e-mail, to give you the chance to find out more about life at Aston and provide reassurance and friendly advice. They will be available via e-mail until the start of term. Hearing about the experiences of a current student who remembers what it was like for them when they started at Aston can help you to settle in quickly and make the most of your time here.
If you have accepted a place at Aston and would like to be matched to an e-mentor, simply register your details on our online form.
If you can’t access the online form then just e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also read the Pre-arrival E-mentoring guidelines.
Once we have your details we will match you to a suitable e-mentor as soon as possible, then contact you with details of your e-mentor who should be in touch with you shortly afterwards.
The Pre-arrival E-mentoring lasts until Freshers’ Week. After arrival on campus, new students can choose to be matched to a Peer Mentor who can meet with you in person on our Transition Mentoring programme.
Transition mentoring is for new undergraduate first year students, students on foundation degrees and exchange students. As a new student, you might be new to Birmingham and/or the UK, living away from home for the first time or returning to education as a mature student.Having the support of a current student, who remembers what it was like for them when they started at Aston can help new students to settle in quickly and make the most of their time here.
