MUT First Year Experience (FYE)
There are various opportunities for you to learn how to work with your fellow students to improve learning and adaptation to the university. The TLDC runs a peer mentorship program where, with the assistance of senior students, you are supported to achieve academic excellence and adapt socially. Others peer support programmes at the university are: Peer Education, which is offered by the Clinic to alert students to health and wellness matters; Peer Helpers, offered by Student Counselling to alter students to mental health matters.
Peer Helper Program
Peer-helpers are students from second year up to fourth year of study. They work closely with student counsellors and if a student’s issues are beyond the role of the peer helper, they refer the student to the Student Counselling Unit for professional assistance. Confidentiality is always guaranteed.

Peer educators are trained students from first year up to fourth year of study. They work under the management of the campus clinic. Peer educators host awareness campaigns, alert students about the services offered at the clinic and hold res programs, such as Dialogues (women’s talk) and Imbizo (men’s talk).
