STARS Mentorship programme

Welcome to the STARS Mentorship Programme

The aim of the programme is to assist first year students with their adjustment from high school to varsity life by supporting them socially and emotionally with the intention to boost their academic performance.

The programme employs the capabilities of senior students on our campus (2nd year and above), who are trained within the programme to assist and groom the first year students throughout their first year of study.

As a mentor, this opportunity forms part of your community service and is thus a great addition to your CV.

Once enrolled in the programme, each first year student is assigned a mentor (senior student) who is studying a similar course to help them navigate around campus, assist them to set their goals, and to refer them to relevant people on our different campuses when need arises.

You can be refered to:

Faculty Student Advisors, Financial Aid offices, SCU, Career Services and many more.
