How do I join a program to get help from a mentor?

When first joining Vygo, you might be automatically connected with a Program. If this is the case, simply follow the prompts and you will be connected to the program in no time.

Otherwise, to join a program and access help from one of our friendly mentors, start by heading to the ‘Programs’ page – which can be reached by clicking the menu option in the top right corner of your screen. Alternatively, if you’re on the dashboard, under the heading ‘Programs’, you’ll see a selection of recommended or top programs to select, or you can select 'View All' to navigate to the 'Programs' page.

From the 'Programs' page, you will then be able to peruse what’s available under the ‘All programs’ tab. Look out for any programs with a 'Recommended' tag - these are recommended for you based on your interests. Scroll through and find what you want or use the search box to filter the list according to your search terms.

Once you have clicked a program you are interested in, you will be able to read more information on it under the ‘About this program’ header.

Note that you might need to click on the blue arrow to expand the text. If you are keen to join the program that you’re reading about, click the blue ‘Join Program’ button.

You might be able to jump straight in, but some programs will prompt you with a few questions to ascertain your needs beforehand.

Once you have answered them, you may be asked to read over the program’s guidelines, and then you will either become a member automatically or your status will be set to ‘Pending Join Request’ until your membership is approved – which shouldn’t take long!

Note: Mentors could be Buddies,Supporters,Tutors or anyone who is offering support to students in their academic journey!
