What is it?

Starting university can be exciting, fun filled and hopefully the start of the best years of your life. However, we also
know it can be a little daunting at times. MyUniPal is a peer mentoring scheme, which helps students get the best
possible start to their new life at DMU.

Our UniPals are the best possible people to help new students. Why? Because they have been through it all before,
just a year or two ago!

Who is it for?

Any student who is new to the university can get a MyUniPal. This includes students who have recently arrived in the
country, students new to the city of Leicester or students who are new to the DMU campus. 

Students who have been at DMU for one year or more, can apply to become UniPals for new students.

How it works?

The scheme is here to support new students and provide the information and guidance needed to ensure their time
at DMU is a success. Students can access support, whether that’s a two minute chat or a two hour activity from our
pool of UniPals.

What students say?

“MyUniPal gave me the opportunity to engage with new students on the first week of their journey at DMU.
The experience and advice that I could provide was greatly received by students and hopefully gave them the
confidence to get stuck in to university life here at DMU. I look forward to volunteering again as a Mentor in the future.”
