BL Families

Learn more about BL Families, our Welcome Week peer mentoring scheme for students at Barts and The London.

Here is where you can sign-up for BL Families, our Welcome Week peer-mentoring scheme for students at Barts and The London! Current students – 'parents' – are matched with first year students to provide a friendly face and help settling in to university life. 

The scheme is a great way to meet new people and get introduced to life at Barts and The London. Even if you won’t be on campus in September, you can still take part in the scheme.

By signing up to the scheme, you'll be invited to our in-person Welcome Week events on the weekend of 17-18 September and during Welcome Week. We hope to see you there!

Applications for BL Families 2022 are now open.
