Our Specialist Mentors will meet students, on campus, on a regular basis and are trained to assist in a wide range of areas, including:

  • Getting settled into university life
  • Accessing university resources and social opportunities
  • Time management and organisational skills
  • Planning and starting assignments
  • Developing communication and group work skills
  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Preparing for exam revision
  • Maintaining motivation

Specialist Mentoring support provides dedicated time spent discussing your needs, setting actions and reviewing goals. This type of support is usually on a one-to-one basis with your advisor and typically takes between 1-2 hours for each session.

Our Specialist Mentors have all undertaken degree level qualifications and are familiar with university processes. They are also highly trained and experienced autism specialists.
