What are Peer Guides?
Peer Guides are students who help other students. In particular, they:
- Help new and visiting students settle in and make the transition into student life
- Formalise the ad-hoc peer support that naturally develops within student communities
- Help bring the Royal Holloway community together
- Help students understand diversity
What is the Peer Guidance Scheme?
We recruit and train second and final year undergraduate students to help guide new students through their first year at Royal Holloway.
The relationship between Peer Guides and their first year student is informal, non-academic and provides a non-judgmental level of support and advice about being a student at Royal Holloway. If necessary, the Peer Guide will refer students who need more structured support to the one of our specialist Welfare teams.
