Student Mentor Scheme

We are very lucky to have a range of student mentors from across our year groups who will be available to you throughout the application stage and in your 1st year.

It’s your chance to ask one of our current students what life here is like. Once you are made an offer of a place, one of our student mentors will contact you via email. It’s then completely up to you what you would like to talk about.

We hope that you will get the chance to meet your mentor at one of our Department Visit Days. If you have any questions about the scheme or becoming a student mentor yourself, please contact Gail Sheldrick on 015245 94931 or email g.sheldrick@lancaster.ac.uk.

“When I was preparing for university, I didn’t really know what to expect and I was quite nervous. I put myself forward to be a mentor so that I could answer all the questions that a prospective student has to ensure they thoroughly look forward to their time at Lancaster University.”

“I think it’s nice just to know that you already know somebody at university before you’ve even got there, as well as the benefit of being able to ask any questions about things before and during your time at university.”
