Mentoring schemes

Student Development and Study Skills (SDSS) operate two kinds of student mentoring for USW students, and these schemes provide support in different ways. While both schemes provide student to student support, one scheme offers practical or pastoral support to new students and the other scheme provides weekly group study sessions focusing on academic work.
