Who can join this Peer Mentoring Program?

The UNSW Business Society Peer Mentoring Program is for all new first year undergraduate students enrolled in a business degree. This includes transfer students to the Business School (ie. anyone who is in their first year of a Business School related degree.)

Program description

The program provides a wide range of social and academic engagement support for mentees.


Through fostering mentee interactions and forging new friendships, mentees undergo a smooth transition into university life. It establishes a welcoming and continuing support structure for all mentees inclusive of mentees, mentors and coordinators. Mentors also provide a variety of tips and advice, ranging from the best cheap places to eat on campus to UNSW services available to students.


Academically, mentors provide advice, recommendations and support regarding subject choices and majors. This also includes possible information about general study tips, helpful resources, and academic services.
