Peer Guides


Are you a new first year undergraduate student in September 2023?

If so, good news! You will have the chance to be allocated a Peer Guide who will provide peer-to-peer guidance during the first four weeks as you transition into university life. 


What are Peer Guides?

Peer Guides are current students (in the same School as you) and are a great source of information: they will be able to provide you with practical guidance and helpful resources during your first weeks as a Royal Holloway student. They can also signpost you to other university services if you have specific queries or concerns.


What is the Peer Guidance Scheme?

We recruit and train second and final year undergraduate students, as well as continuing postgraduate students, to help guide new undergraduate students through their first few weeks at Royal Holloway. 

The relationship between Peer Guides and new students is informal, non-academic and provides a non-judgmental level of advice and guidance about being a student at Royal Holloway. If necessary, the Peer Guide will refer students who need more structured support to one of our specialist Student Wellbeing teams.

Applications to become a Peer Guide for 2023/24 are now open. You can apply by following this link.
