In addition to the Foundation Courses and Plus Tutorials offered to Humanities Extended Degree students, there are also a Mentorship Programme available. This is the Humanities Faculty Mentorship Programme (HFMP), which mentors from a peer perspective, under the guidance of Bhavani Krishna.

We understand that you may feel more comfortable approaching a fellow student than a staff member to ask for advice, discuss problems, and share your experiences of UCT. Our mentors have been carefully selected and trained for their role and will meet regularly with supervisor mentors so that their performance can be monitored. Mentors will also receive additional training and support throughout the year. Your mentors will meet with you, at pre-arranged days or times, and you will also be able to contact them via email at any time.
