As part of the Realising Opportunities (RO) Programme students are supported by an ementor who is a current student at one of the RO universities. Ementoring covers a range of topics to help students gain important information about higher education and to support them in making their applications to university, underpinning the Programme’s core aims.
Every month our ementors cover a different topic area such as study skills, university research, UCAS, personal statements and student finance as well as answering any questions RO students may have about what it is like to study at a research intensive university.
Ementoring is conducted securely through an online platform hosted by Brightside, providing a safe environment for discussion to take place. All of our ementors are trained and hold full DBS checks. The ementoring platform also gives students access to a wealth of resources and activities to help them to make informed choices about their future as well as developing skills that will help them to be successful.
If you are currently a student at one of the RO universities and would be interested in becoming an ementor please contact the RO co-ordinator at your university. You will find their details on the Key Contacts page.
