Student Mentoring Scheme (SMS)

The Student Mentoring Scheme (SMS) was initiated in some academic departments of the City University of Hong Kong in 1998. Since 1999/2000, it has been implemented university-wide by all academic departments and more than 400 senior students participating in this scheme.

SMS aims to help new students adapt smoothly to university life and shapes senior students as big brothers and sisters for our freshmen. Under this scheme, a variety of student-oriented activities/events are organized with the involvement of both academic staff and student mentors, such as orientation tours, a help desk, study groups, BBQs and other forms of social gatherings.

As a student mentee, you are able to smoothly adapt yourself to university life and more importantly, develop yourself as a better person as well as a professional in your field of interest.

As a student mentor, you are able to take an active role in providing assistance, guidance, and support to new students. We are sure that your contribution is greatly valued and recognized by both the Department and the University. Nowadays, the practice of “mentoring” is also adopted by many organizations. By being a mentor, you will definitely learn much more than just being an ordinary university student.
