Welcome to the Cultural Mentor 'Buddy' Program

International Student Experience Unit's Cultural Mentoring Program introduces new international students to a senior student 'buddy'. Cultural Mentors are available to answer questions about learning at UNSW or living in Sydney and can provide new students with insight into Australian cultures and customs.

New students can apply to be matched with a Cultural Mentor prior to their arrival in Australia or for face-to-face advice at our activities.

All Cultural Mentors have been through a selection process and have been trained to assist new students to adjust to learning at UNSW and living in Sydney.

Here you can find information about the UNSW Cultural Mentoring Program for new international students.

Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3.
