First Year Mentors

The first-year mentors for the Faculty of Science & Engineering are available to answer questions and give advice to first-year students. They can help with the transition to university life and help you with any questions you might have about the papers you have selected and how they prepare you for your future career. If you are considering an interdisciplinary subject such as Biochemistry and you're not sure who to talk to, Contact the Dean's Office in the first instance.
