Buddy and mentoring schemes

Please note, you must have an unconditional offer from us or have met your conditions of a place to sign up to our mentoring schemes.

The University of St Andrews has a wide range of buddy and mentoring schemes to help students transition into or through the University. The schemes are organised into those which are open to any students, those for undergraduates, and those for postgraduates. Please browse the schemes to find those relevant to you, and the link to the on-line applicaiton forms.

We recognise that the success of the mentoring schemes depends on student volunteers who give up their time to act as mentors and guide and advise their mentees. Mentors can achieve recognition in the form of a mentoring electronic badge which can be added to their LinkedIn page.


Current schemes include:
