College Mentors

All new undergraduates and postgraduates have a college mentor - someone who will welcome you into the college community and who will be there to offer support and advice throughout your time here. Mentors help our undergraduate students to engage in the Durham Inspired Award. 

Our mentors have a wide range of experiences in many different fields, some of which you may be interested in, such as running national charities, working in local and national government, the law, the army, industry, medicine, teaching – as well as academics representing a wide range of academic disciplines. A mentor can be a really valuable source of support.
