In your third year of study as a Dalyell Scholar, you can take part in professional mentoring. This will give you the opportunity to explore career pathways, build graduate qualities and increase employability with an experienced industry professional in the field of your choice.
Professional mentoring for 2023 will commence in Semester 1, 2023. Registration opened on Tuesday 29 November 2022 and closed on Monday 9 January 2023.
Other key dates for this program are listed below.
You will be allocated to a small group with a mentor. Your mentor will be an experienced professional alumnus from the University of Sydney or a senior leader from our university community.
There’ll be 3 sessions, each running for about an hour. You’ll need to complete pre-session and post-session work. This may take 1-2 hours per session. If you successfully complete the program, you’ll have the opportunity for a one-on-one mentoring session as well as a networking event.
To participate, you’ll need to attend the welcome and induction webinar, held at the beginning of Semester 1, or watch the recording.
This program will be in a hybrid mode, depending on the needs of the mentor and mentees within each group.
Your mentor will consider your availability when arranging mentoring sessions, however this program will suit students with flexible schedules.
|Prior to Semester 1 commencing||13 to 19 February|
|Session 1 (Weeks 4)||13 to 19 March|
|Session 2 (Week 8)||17 to 23 April|
|Session 3 (Week 12)||15 to 21 May|
You are eligible to apply for the program if you are a Dalyell Scholar expecting to be enrolled in your third year or above of study in Semester 1, 2023.
