Peer Mentoring Programme

Every new student (mentee) is assigned 3 – 5 peer mentors (Year 2 or 3 or postgraduate students) to be his or her mentors at the University Orientation and throughout his or her first year of study at the University. The programme enables every new student to develop network with his or her mentors and have mutual experience exchange. While mentees could learn from their mentors’ experiences in various aspects of university life, mentors could also learn assuming responsibilities and care for others.
