STEER volunteering

STEER is a university-wide peer support scheme linking in returning student 'Captains' with new undergraduate or taught post-graduate student 'Crew' during their first or second year at Stirling. Whether based overseas, here for a semester abroad, undergrad or postgrad, our Captains can help everyone with the transition of settling into life at the University of Stirling.

The scheme aims to help students make the most of their time at the University by helping new students settle in and realise the opportunities available to them. 

Students can sign up as Crew at any time during their first year or second year. There are also occasions where we accept Crew from higher years if students feel that they would greatly benefit from this level of support. If this is you and you are in second year or above, please contact us, and we will allocate a Captain to you in the same way.

All Captains are volunteers who are recruited, trained and supported by the Students' Union. In fact, many Captains were once Crew themselves.
