What are Peer Guides?
Peer Guides are fellow students who help other students in the same department. In particular, they:
- Help new and visiting students settle in and make the transition into student life
- Provide advice and guidance on being a student in the same department
- 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 undergraduate 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 advice and guidance 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 Student Wellbeing teams.
Please note: applications to become a Peer Guide for 2019/20 are now closed.
