PGR Peer Mentoring Scheme


The PGR Peer Mentoring Scheme has been set up to provide the opportunity for new researchers at Royal Holloway to benefit from informal peer-to-peer support from researchers in the later stages of their research degree.

  • The PGR peer mentors can support mentees with advice on community and developmental aspects of PGR study e.g. discussions may include future career aspirations, working successfully with your supervisor, work/life balance, demands of personal/work life etc.
  • PGR peer mentors will often have more than one mentee and are encouraged to meet with them in a small group, thus helping mentees to meet other new students and build a support network at Royal Holloway. 
  • All new postgraduate researchers and those who are entering their second year in September 2023 can apply for a mentor. Please email Laura.Christie@rhul.ac.uk We will assign you a mentor in September/October 2023.
