This year the society are wanting to support students even more around their studies. In such a demanding course both academically and practically it can be good to have someone to call when things get tough. We’ve set up a ‘ParaPals' scheme, where first year students are matched up with second and third year ‘pals’ who’ve been through the worries of starting placement for the first time, a bad job, an essay crisis – all the usual. The idea is that theres always a completely neutral person to ask for help and advice separately from the university.
