The Built Environment Student Association (BESA) Peer Mentoring Program aims to assist new Built Environment students to get settled into university. This fast-growing program is for all undergraduate students of the Built Environment Faculty. First-year students are the mentees, who are supported by trained mentors from second year or above. The program is organised by the Built Environment Student Association (BESA) and endorsed by the Peer Mentoring @UNSW Program and the UNSW Built Environment Faculty. This program includes a Peer Mentoring Meet and Greet in Week 1 followed by smaller group mentoring sessions.
Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3.
Week 1 to Week 10 of term (dependant upon mentor and mentee arrangements).
You will receive an email around the period of December to January each year calling out for expressions of interest to become a mentee.
Mentor applications open around December/January. All Mentors must undertake mandatory training organised by the university. For more information about becoming a BESA Peer Mentor, please email the BESA Peer Mentoring coordinator on the email address below.
