Alexandra, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Peer Mentor
"Peer mentoring is an invigorating experience, and the best part is, it works both ways. As a mentor, I was able to build on my confidence, my communication skills and my ability to work in a team. The mentees then gain the benefits of your experience, knowledge and understanding of the university system, along with your support, care and guidance. It's a really fulfilling program."
Julita, UNSW Business Society Peer Mentor
"My experience as a UNSW Business Society Peer Mentor gave me the opportunity to support and assist first year students in their transition towards university life, by passing on tips and knowledge. As well as making a small contribution to their university life, I also had a wonderful time getting to meet new people."
Lillian, School of Psychology Peer Mentor
"Being a mentor to first year Psychology students was a satisfying experience. It helped me build my confidence to interact with others, further develop my leadership skills, and provided me with the opportunity to assist the first years' transition into uni, as my mentors had helped me in my first year."
Amelia, Mature Age Peer Mentor
"Being a mentor has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Helping the new students move from feeling very anxious and overwhelmed to calm and at ease with their new university life is really rewarding to be a part of!"
Kartini, Law Plus Peer Mentor
"As a mentor, I have seen how LawPLUS helps students grow and find the confidence they need to not just take part in, but relish, the vibrant, inclusive and exciting student culture that our Law School embodies. Through weekly mentoring catch-ups, skills workshops and entire year socials, LawPLUS ensures that new students are given the opportunity to bond with one another, whilst providing a supportive network in which first years can ask questions and express concerns."
