Become a peer mentor


The Peer Mentoring Program aims to:

  • develop your leadership skills
  • meet new people
  • receive a certificate of completion

Starting in Faculty Welcome Week, this program will see you matched with a group of commencing Business School students to show them around, answer their questions and provide them support with getting started.

What’s involved

This is a volunteer role where you will be allocated a group of students. For Semester 2, 2023 only on campus option is available.

As a mentor, you need to commit about 20 hours to the program. You are required to:

  • complete an online training module and attend, one day face to face training, where you will be given information on your mentor role
  • attend Faculty Welcome Week events 
  • meet with your students at least two additional times during the program (between Weeks 1 and 8)
  • submit a short survey to provide feedback on each meeting 
  • keep in touch with your students and be available to respond if they contact you.

As a peer mentor you will receive free training in group leadership and communication skills. You will get a certificate of recognition from the Business School when you complete the program.



If you have any questions, email the Student Experience Programs Coordinator at

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.

How to register

To register your interest in becoming a Peer Mentor for Semester 2 2023, please fill out the application form for undergraduate mentors or postgraduate mentors. Applications close on 11 June 2023.

What happens next

Faculty Welcome Day

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.

Group meetings and activities

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.
