As part of the mentor program, you will build upon your training and leadership qualities. We will keep you informed of upcoming social events and industry opportunities you can get involved in.
You can register to be a mentor if you are in at least your second year in an undergraduate (or combined) degree in the Faculty of Science. Honours students can also apply to be a mentor.
Complete this form to become a Science peer mentor in 2019.
You will be given an online training module to complete during the months of December-January. You also need to attend a face-to-face training session where you participate in workshops that provide you with the necessary information and tools you need to be a successful and engaged mentor. The training session runs for approximately four hours.
If you are unable to attend the training session, you need to contact the Student Support Officer at email@example.com. If you can’t attend the session you may not be able to participate in the program as a mentor. This decision will be made by the Student Support Officer.

First-year students elect a discipline group when they register for the mentoring program. You will also elect a discipline area before the training session. You will be allocated a group of first-year students based on preferred discipline areas.
You will attend the Science Student Transition Workshop, a one-day welcome day for commencing undergraduate students held on the Wednesday of Welcome Week. Here you will meet your group for the first time, show them around campus and arrange to meet-up again during weeks 1-6 of Semester.
Throughout the semester you will attend interfaculty events and skills development sessions. You are also expected to correspond on a regular basis with your group and and are encouraged to organise additional social events or meetings to help them settle into the University.
