Suffolk Life Mentor Scheme

What is the Suffolk Life Mentor Scheme?

The Suffolk Life Mentor Scheme allows students to network and support other students here at Suffolk. 

Your university experience will be greatly enhanced by having a Suffolk Life Mentor. They will show you what university life has to offer, and support you on your Suffolk journey.

Take part in our activities

Our mentors run fun, exciting, and helpful sessions for all students and staff throughout the academic year. 

Our student mentors have run sessions such as:

  • Spring Walk to Holywells Park
  • University chill-out tour
  • Group cinema trip
  • Budgeting games
  • Time Management session

All sessions are completely free, and a great way to meet new people.

Explore the university with our student mentors

Our Suffolk Life Mentors are trained by staff in Student Services who provide information and advice on:

  • Careers and Employability
  • Student Finance
  • Disability and Wellbeing
  • International opportunities 

Our Suffolk Life Mentors also bring their university/life experience to their role. Many of our student mentors are:

  • On placement as part of their course.
  • Working part-time in Ipswich and beyond.
  • Mature students.
  • The first of their family to go to university.

Our mentors now want to help fellow students get the most out of university and enjoy their time at Suffolk.
