Dalyell Scholars

Opportunities and professional development

Mentoring and professional skills development

As a Dalyell Scholar you have access to a co-curricular mentoring program to help you develop your leadership potential.

This is delivered in three stages:

  • 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.

The University values our Dalyell Scholars as future leaders and aims to give you a role in shaping the opportunities available to you within the Dalyell stream. Each year two student representatives will be appointed by the Dalyell Faculty Lead from each faculty or school offering degrees that include the stream. If you are interested in becoming a Dalyell student representative, contact your Dalyell Faculty Lead.

Global mobility opportunities

Each Dalyell Scholar is entitled to a global mobility scholarship of up to $2000. You are encouraged 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 global mobility scholarship online.

Dalyell community and events

Dalyell Scholars form a group of high achieving students who are studying across various faculties, schools and disciplines. Co-curricular and academic opportunities available within the stream will help you to get to know your peers. When you join the stream you will be added to the Dalyell Scholars e-Community in Canvas (the University’s online learning space). This is a great way to connect with your cohort and will help you to find out about co-curricular opportunities that are coming up.
