Peer Advisor – Humanities Undergraduate Writing Centre, University of Exeter

Universtiy of Exeter Internships, UoE Internships, SCP, SBP, GBP, A2I

What were your main duties and responsibilities during the course of your internship?

I held appointments once a week for humanities students to drop in and get essay feedback before it was submitted so that they could improve their writing style. This involved marketing the appointments, running the sessions, giving coherent feedback and also performing administrative tasks. I also set up the training plan for the new advisers to take over.

What would you say was your biggest achievement over the course of your internship?

Helping and reassuring new first years about what was expected of them.

What benefits did your internship bring to your employer?

It alleviated the number of questions directed at academics as well as giving them a place to recommend students to for more general writing style queries.
