Mentoring of undergraduate students

If you are willing to assist in the mentoring process of undergraduate students you will be investing in the future!
You will be given a list of students in your area with whom you can correspond and encourage in their studies on a weekly or monthly basis. Because you have completed your programme of study, you have much to offer in encouragement and guidance. You will understand that distance learning is sometimes very lonely and a long process. Thank you for making yourself available to help encourage struggling students! Contact for more information.
