• Are you a HUM student who would like to use your experience and knowledge to help your peers in HUM?
• Could you mentor new students to help them manage the transition to university study?
UEA’s Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) scheme and the Faculty of Humanities are working together to pilot an exciting new initiative to create student-led learning communities across the Faculty in 2019/20.
Mentors will help to develop and run a ‘reading and writing cafe’, designed to help new students develop their academic practices as HUM scholars.
