Dalyell Scholars

Opportunities and professional development

Mentoring and professional skills development

As a Dalyell Scholar you have access to mentoring to help you develop your leadership potential. Mentoring is co-curricular, meaning it doesn't contribute to your degree requirements. 

There are three parts to the mentoring:

  • peer-to-peer mentoring – to get to know your peers and help you transition successfully to University
  • academic mentoring – to help identify your goals and plan your degree
  • professional mentoring- to help you explore career pathways through mentoring from alumni and academics.

Your Dalyell coordinator will help you get started.

Dalyell student representatives

The University values Dalyell Scholars as future leaders and wants to give you a role in shaping your opportunities within the Dalyell stream. Each year, Dalyell Faculty leads will appoint two student representatives from each faculty or school offering the Dalyell stream. If you are interested in becoming a Dalyell student representative, contact your Dalyell Faculty lead.

Mobility opportunities

Each Dalyell Scholar is entitled to a mobility scholarship of up to $2000. We encourage you to use this towards either a short-term (winter, summer or internship) mobility opportunity worth at least six credit points, or a semester exchange worth 24 credit points. See our Study abroad and exchange page for more information on the programs available to you.

Once you’ve applied and are accepted into a program, you will need to apply for the Dalyell mobility scholarship online.

Dalyell Scholars e-community and events

When you join the Dalyell stream, you will have access to the Dalyell Scholars e-community in Canvas. This e-community will allow you to interact with your peers who are enrolled in the stream and come from a wide range of courses across the University. Announcements are regularly posted by Dalyell faculty leads, so you can find out about co-curricular aspects of the stream and receive important messages from your faculty. 

Participating in co-curricular and academic opportunities available within the stream will help you to get to know your fellow high achieving students from across faculties, schools and disciplines. The e-community in Canvas will help you find out about upcoming co-curricular opportunities.
