International Student Mentor (2018-current)

Activity: Other activity typesOther

Description

I support international students especially at their initial transitional stage at QUB and help them to adjust quickly when reaching Belfast (a new environment). Before the pandemic, students were invited to F2F meetings that included treats. Topics discussed focused on creating a sense of community especially to the newcomers. I provided information on the campus facilities and the various types of support provided by Student Guidance Centre including Visa Extension, Employability events, Summer Studentship etc. During the pandemic, online MS teams were held and focused on the topics mentioned above.


Feedback from an International Student, March 2022
Dear Dr. Eiman, Thank you so much for the meeting today, I found it so useful!  Kind regards, Priscilla

Through this role, I enrich the students' learning experience by highlighting the facilities and the support they can use to be able to succeed and later find either a suitable Postgraduate Degree or a Job after  graduation.
