Peer Mentoring Programme

There will be about 20-23 students in each NSO group led by 3-5 senior students as Peer Mentors. The Peer Mentors will attend to you and help facilitate your integration into the university life. They will share their invaluable experience with you and continue to help you adjust to the university life after NSO. Your Peer Mentors will contact you from 1 Sept 2020 onwards to answer your enquiries and help you adjust to university life.

 

NSO is just a start of peer mentor and mentee relationship. We encourage you to keep in contact with your Peer Mentors after commencement of the new academic year. You can keep in touch with your Peer Mentors by all possible means such as cell phone, WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook or Instagram, if not face-to-face.
