What is the Peer Support Programme?
As an incoming student, new to the University, it is perfectly
normal to have lots of questions and some trepidation about
- How will I find my way
- Will I make friends?
- Where is the nearest
There are also many questions you might not
even have thought about yet:
- How do I reference correctly
in my essays?
- How do I find a private house
for my second year?
- What is critical
The Peer Support Programme puts you in contact
with a current student who has been there, done that and got the
T-shirt, and is an expert on life at YSJ and in York. Peer
Supporters are there to answer any questions you may have and also
get you ahead of the curve by making you aware of some of the
common aspects of student life before they occur.
As a current student the Peer Support
Programme provides you with the opportunity to develop your skills
and experiences across a number of areas whilst getting to meet new
students. This skill and experiences you will develop are the
kind of attributes that employers look for so being a Peer
Supporter is great way to enhance your CV.
