Departmental Peer Guides
Each academic Department has a team of Departmental Peer Guides (who are either second or third year students or postgraduates). Each year these Peer Guides are available to offer informal help, information, advice and guidance to newly arrived, first year students. Peer Guides can help new students to settle into University life as they have knowledge and experience about the University, the Department and Aberystwyth town. Individual discussions between new students and Peer Guides are private and confidential.
Just before the start of the academic year, new students are contacted by their Department and provided with further information concerning arrangements about how to contact their Departmental Peer Guide.
