Peer Mentors

The transition from school to college life can be made easier and more fun with the help of the UCD peer mentoring team of students, who are always at hand whenever you need them. Peer Mentors are students who have already completed their first or second year of study in a similar area and understand what it is like to be a new student at UCD.
