Praise for SoSS’ student support

(14 May 2015)

The School of Social Sciences (SoSS) recently won a number of awards for their fantastic student support services.

The BA (Econ) Peer Mentor Scheme won the award for the University's Peer Mentoring Scheme of the Year 2015 beating schemes from across the University’s four Faculties.

At a prestigious ceremony, awards were handed out to SoSS student mentors Gabriela Lecaro Calle, Ayushmita Hazarika, Kirsty Poots and Rita Patricio. 

Philippa Wilson, the School's Undergraduate Student Welfare Officer, also received an award for her Outstanding Contribution to Peer Support (2015). 

The peer support scheme provides help to students, from induction support through to essay writing workshops and careers events. Peer support exists in each of the Schools across the Faculty and has been proven to positively help students’ experience during their time at the University.
