STEER peer support

Your Students' Union is delighted to host STEER for 2017/18. STEER is a University-wide peer support scheme linking in returning student "Captains" with new undergraduate or taught post-graduate "Crew" during their first year at Stirling.

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

Students can sign up for a Captain at any time during their first year, but we encourage applications as early as possible so you can make the most of your Captain’s experience!

All Captains are volunteers who are recruited, trained and supported by the Students' Union. In fact, many buddies have previously benefited from the STEER initiative!

If you are feeling unsure, anxious or just in need of some guidance then sign up today.
