Student Connect Mentoring

The Student Connect Mentoring Programme provides a friendly introduction to NUI Galway for first year students. Existing students are tasked with ensuring the fluid integration of incoming First Years into university life. This voluntary programme will assist First Years with any transitional needs and mentors will be a go-to person for any problems they may have or assistance they may require. The Student Connect Mentoring Programme is an invaluable component of student services and its success relies on the contribution of Connect Volunteers

What is Student Connect? 

Student Connect is the University's mentoring programme for 1st year students. It is a student-led programme whereby Mentor Leaders (experienced mentors) advised and train mentors who in turn mentor the University's new first year students.  Mentor Leaders and mentors are volunteers and are happy to spend time with new students to help them settle into the University. 


How Does Student Connect Work? 

You and a group of other first year students will be introduced to your mentor at Orientation. The aim of the programme is two-fold, ie. students have an experienced student to contact if they encounter any difficulties and they also meet a new group of friends.
