For many students, the first few weeks will be the time when they have the most questions
and will benefit from the opportunity to discuss issues with a mentor.
It's also likely that they will
have questions as they approach the different stages of their studies, for example, when preparing a dissertation
if they are a Masters student or when they are entering Completion as a PhD student.
The scheme has been set
up to have the flexibility to accommodate the different stages and challenges of postgraduate study.
