STEER is a University-wide Student Peer Support Scheme providing Mentors for any Undergraduate or Taught Postgraduate student in their first year at the University of Stirling. The scheme aims to help students make the most of their time at the University and enable them to settle in as quickly as possible. STEER has been running since 2008/9.
Mentees can register for a Mentor at any time during their first year but are encouraged to do so as early as possible, rather than waiting for any problems to arise.
Mentors are current student volunteers. The University provides them with initial training, a developmental pathway and recognition through a Certificate.
