What is Peer Support?

Did you know that we will start with Peer support in Oslo this autumn? We will start at the four largest educational institutions - UiO, OsloMet, BI and Høyskolen Kristiania.

Wondering what Peer Support is? A Peer Supporter is a student who has experience of being a student. As a Peer Supporter, you volunteer to help and support your fellow students. This can be done in several ways; including through one-on-one conversations. Peer Support can also take place through social events; pizza night, taco night, reading circle, knitting club, quiz, etc. Especially now that we know that many students struggle with loneliness and poorer mental health due to the corona pandemic, Peer Support is just what we need!
