Peer Learning Program
Looking for a fantastic leadership opportunity?
Learning Peers are MRU students who support fellow students in a variety of subjects with course-specific knowledge, study strategies, and encouragement. Student Learning Services provides in-depth training and ongoing support to ensure this is a rewarding volunteer leadership opportunity.
What does it take?
B+ or better course grade in the course you want to help with (final mark or mid-term mark if you are currently in the course), solid understanding of course material and a passion for helping fellow students.
Why should you get involved?
Gain volunteer leadership experience and a wealth of skills that will stand out on any resumé. As an added bonus, we are excited to offer a variety of tailored Learning Peer Awards each term for outstanding performance (ranging from $100 to $500), personal and professional development opportunities, great swag and social events.

Who are Learning Peers?
Learning Peers are students just like you who learned how to master their courses and volunteer to help to other students with their courses. They are the best kind of study-buddies, offering friendly support, a wealth of subject-specific knowledge and study strategy ideas. It's more than tutoring; it's like a personal trainer for your academic life.
