Things to Know as a Mentee
Your mentor is here to provide skills support. They will work with you to help your assignment writing improve, be able to sign post other places you could get help from within the University and Students’ Union, and more.
Meeting up with your mentor, face to face or online, is one of the best parts of mentoring. Making sure to set meet ups and sticking to them is key to keeping the relationship helpful.
From signing up as a mentee, you can:
- Gain confidence in academic skills
- Become an independent learner
- Help to develop your own approach to academic writing
- Get help with acting on assignment feedback
- Get involved in a learning community
Things a Mentor Can’t Offer
- Feedback on assignment content for submission
- Advice on content or subject related issues
- Advice/counselling on any problems
- Corrections or changes to an assignment
Although mentors can’t offer these things, they can direct you to places which can. Check out our “Where To Go” article to see what services you can access in the Students’ Union and University.
Benefits of a mentor/mentee that isn’t on your course
Working with someone that isn’t on your course means that you’re focusing on study skills instead of the content of the work – any issues with the content of an assignment can be looked at with tutors and lecturers.
