Undergraduate Mentoring

Physics is hard. Let's be honest here, everyone struggles with it sometimes. We understand that and we've been through the same difficulties, which is why we founded the Mentoring scheme to provide help for any students who want it. Sometimes just going over a topic again with someone, or having it explained a little different can make all the difference.

This scheme is run by undergrads for undergrads. Signing up, you can specify any particular modules you're having trouble with, and you'll be assigned a student who has taken the module and signed up to say they're keen to mentor somebody in it. On the other side, signing up to be a mentor is a great way to hone your teaching skills and consolidate your knowledge, which will give you a head-start on revising for the synoptic module in your final year.

If you’d like to sign up to be mentor or mentee this year, here's a form for you to fill out. If you have any questions about mentoring/mentors you can send an email to mentoring@physoc.org.uk.

Wednesday afternoon drop-in session

If you’d like some support with one of your modules, help with a difficult problem sheet or just someone to ask tricky questions to, come along to the physics library from 2 - 5 on a Wednesday. The sessions are run by physics postgrads in the style of a small-group problems class. You don’t have to come along for the whole session, you can arrive whenever you like and leave whenever you’re done.
