Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Starting out at university can be a daunting prospect for students, which will only become more of an issue with more diverse and larger first year intakes expected. Students 4 Students (S4S) has been developed over an eight-year period to become a university-wide initiative aimed at helping first year undergraduates settle into university life and aid the transition to a higher education setting. All first year undergraduates from across the institution get an S4S Mentor, and current developments include potential Enhanced S4S Mentoring; this will provide more specialised support to enhance the provision for incoming students.
