Join Culture Connect mentoring scheme

Wherever you’re from, you belong!

The aim of Culture Connect is to help new students settle into life in the UK and have a positive university experience. All current UK and international students can apply to become mentors and mentees. There will be regular training and social activities for all members.


You may need help meeting new friends and adjusting to a new culture and social norms. Your mentor will help you integrate into the community and meet people from different countries, as well as introducing you to the wide network of support available at Sheffield Hallam University and beyond.


We encourage students who have taken part in extracurricular activities to get involved as mentors. Culture Connect is a great way to meet new people, develop cultural awareness and gain valuable experience for your CV.
