UNSW Engineering has a mentoring program to help new students make a smooth transition to university life. Meetings with mentors usually run for the first 4 weeks of Semester 1. Flexible First Year students can join in with any School they have an interest in.
Mentors act in a non-academic role helping new students find their way around UNSW, provide advice on opportunities available, and help students form a social network.
An email is sent in December to Engineering students who have completed 48 UOC and hold a current WAM of 65 and above. Those students that are interested may register or express their interest.
If the student has not completed the Mentoring training they need to attend a 1 day training session which is usually held in February.
Semester 1, Weeks 1-4
