I'm a senior student, how can I become a mentor?

Science Peer Mentors are experienced undergraduate students who provide support to first year students making the transition to university life.  Mentors use their experience and knowledge to guide new students through those first crucial weeks at university.

All mentors are provided with comprehensive training to ensure they have the knowledge, skills and confidence to support new students. To be a Science Peer Mentor you need to have the capacity to provide enough time and motivation to commit to the duration of the program. Mentors are expected to meet/maintain contact with a group or individual mentees during Term 1.

Applications for mentors to partake in the 2019 program are now closed.
