International student being offered support bu Global Peer Assisted Learning leader

Global PAL (Peer Assisted Learning)

Global Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Leaders can help your transition to life in Bristol and the University.

Support and guidance

Coming to a new university, in a new country can be an adventure, but it can also be a time when you have many questions. As well as our dedicated Global Student Support team, we have a team of Global PAL Leaders, who can offer you support and guidance as you settle in at UWE Bristol and Bristol.

Shared experiences

Global PAL Leaders are current students who will be able to share their own experiences of studying at UWE Bristol. They will help you to find your way around the campus and the city of Bristol; provide general information about UWE Bristol's services and facilities; and be a resource for you during your first term.

Global PAL Leaders are running regular sessions as well as events to help you settle in. These fun activities will give you the opportunity to learn about British culture and customs, as well as help you to improve your English and increase your confidence. It is a great way to get to know new people too.
