Student Mentoring at St Andrews

We are currently looking for volunteers to participate in our mentoring programme.  

Student mentoring schemes at universities are fantastic as they have shown to boost social support, self-esteem and a greater sense of community. They are a great opportunity for both mentees and mentors to develop transferable skills such as communication and organisational skills.

You will need to be organised and passionate about supporting students.  Being a mentor involves:  

  • Answering students' questions either over email or in person 
  • Offering support and guidance  
  • Sharing your own experience  

Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to build new friendships and network, but it is also a good chance to give back to our welcoming community, and a volunteering opportunity to enhance your CV! 

The St Leonards Community Scheme is open here 


If you have any questions please email
