If you have any questions, email the Student Experience Programs Coordinator at email@example.com
You are eligible to apply if you are completing a course at the Business School and have completed at least one semester of study.
You need to be enthusiastic and committed to providing support to the students you are mentoring for the first eight weeks of semester.
Faculty Welcome Day arrangements may differ depending on your cohort and these will be discussed at training.
On Faculty Welcome Day, you will meet your mentees (either virtually or in person) in a small group setting where you can answer any questions and share your knowledge of the University. You will create a meeting schedule, discuss preferred methods of communication and provide a tour of the University. We will discuss these aspects during your training.
You are required to organise at least two additional meetings per semester. This should occur within the timeframe outlined by the Mentoring Program.
We encourage you to organise additional meetings and events for your mentees, although this is not compulsory. These activities help you build a rapport with your mentees and build their confidence in meeting other students.
