The Postgraduate Mentor Scheme is a student support network for prospective University of Birmingham students. The mentors are experienced postgraduates who currently study in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, and they will offer help and advice from a student perspective.
You can contact each mentor by email with any questions until September 2013. You do not need to have applied previously to contact the mentors, they can help general enquirers, applicants as well as offer-holders.
It is important to remember that responses are from a student perspective. The mentors can provide insight into areas including accommodation for students, campus life, the city of Birmingham, the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, the course, and the transition into postgraduate study with the University.
You will be able to view the mentor profiles below, Please feel free to contact them directly using the emails provided alongside their profiles.
