Aviation Society (AvSoc)

Who can join this program?

This program is for students commencing their first year of studies in the School of Aviation. Students who are majoring in flying, management or wishing to complete a graduate diploma in flying are also welcome to join.

Program Description

The Aviation Society Peer Mentoring program aims to assist in establishing and improving a channel of communication across students undertaking a UNSW Aviation degree. Not only will this program develop connections between first year students, but also aims to promote and improve the cohesion between first years and senior students in the degree. Mentees will be matched with a mentor that is studying a similar degree and has similar availability. This matching style helps to optimise the mentee experience and allows Mentors to effectively provide information that is more relevant to their mentees' studies and transition. The program will consist of small groups of 3-5 mentees per mentor. Small group sizes enables Mentors to more effectively personalise and adapt meetings and content to the needs and concerns of their mentees .
