Essential Skills Portal: Connect with other students

Connect with other students

Student Connect is a brand-new way for students to chat online with an experienced SHU Student Mentor.

The service is available to all students enrolled on a Level 4 module.  It is accessed via MyHallam which links to the Studiosity Student Dashboard – look out for this box on MyHallam:

From here you can connect with a Student Mentor and ask your question – this can be either general study tips and help, or you can select a specific module that you would like to talk about. 

All Student Mentors are fully trained.  You text chat via a digital platform – it is first names only, and you can ask any question.  There is no such thing as a silly question!  The Student Mentors are trained and experienced, and are friendly and approachable.

The Student Connect service is available from 12pm-10pm every day – just log in to MyHallam to access.
