Starting at university can be a big transition and we want to make it as easy as possible for all students.
Each academic year The Collaborative Engagement and Retention Team (CERT) an NTU recruit CERT Student Mentors to help other students to get most out of the NTU experience.
If you want to be that difference for first-year students, this role will let you positively impact their experience of coming to university – simply by being yourself and sharing your knowledge! If you will be in your second year, final year or returning for postgraduate study, this is a great paid opportunity to get involved.
You will support a group of first-year students from your course, both one-to-one and in groups, and you will work with a wider team of CERT mentors to create a sense of belonging and community.
It is a wonderful opportunity to develop employability skills and boost your confidence in areas like organisation, communication and teamwork. What’s more, the role is flexible to fit around your studies through the year and can be balanced with your needs.
