Student Mentoring at St Andrews

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 offers mentoring schemes to help students transition into or through the University, which mainly run over the summer months and into the first semester. 

The University of St Andrews has a mentoring scheme coordinated by the Student Development team in CEED, for new undergraduate students. This scheme matches mentors and mentees on several areas, with the primary matching criteria being subject/academic school. This scheme is designed to help students transition into/through university. Mentors help mentees settle into university and St Andrews life, and answer questions on a variety of subjects including accommodation, the town, sports, and societies. For incoming first year students.

This is open to all Undergraduate students and Taught Postgraduate students. You can sign up to be a mentor before 25th June.

UG students can sign up here -
PGT students can sign up here -

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.
