Centre for Learning and Study Support (CLaSS): Peer Mentoring

Peer mentoring @ DMU

Mentoring for All @ DMU

Supporting student learning, development and achievement 

CLaSS Banner

The university offers a variety of mentoring opportunities for students and staff.
We have peer to peer mentoring, which involves students working with other students to support their learning. We also have mentoring to help you settle into university life, and to improve your employability skills for when you complete your studies.

“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be."
Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring


Mentoring allows students to work with a mentor (either a fellow student,  a member of DMU staff, or someone outside the university depending on the scheme) for mutual benefit.

Mentoring is becoming an increasingly important part of learning at university and to harness this we have several mentoring schemes available to students under the banner of Mentoring for All:

Dare to Be Mentoring
Helps improve student attainment and enables students to do well in their studies

Helps new students settle into life at DMU and aims to make your time at DMU a success

International Student Buddies (i-Buddies)
Helps new international students settle into university and meet other students

Employability Mentoring
For students who want to learn more from those in industry to help them to improve their employability



Peer Mentoring
Mentoring to help and improve academic achievement and a sense of belonging.

The Centre for Study Support (CLaSS) provides support and coordination for course-based peer mentoring across DMU. The following pages provide information for students and staff interested in finding out more.
