Peer Mentoring Program

students

The Peer Mentoring Program is a student run initiative which aims to help first year students settle into their studies and the University of Adelaide community.

The program runs in semester 1 and 2. It is an informal way to meet other students, learn about campus life, engage in activities and events, have your questions answered, and receive ongoing peer support.

While our program is primarily for commencing undergraduate students (in their first year of study), we welcome all Faculty of the Professions students who would like to join the program.

Our peer mentors know from personal experience what it’s like to be a new student. They are current Professions students, eager to share ‘insider’ information to guide you through university life and help you feel confident in taking the right steps towards study success. Groups meet face-to-face, online and at events/activities.

As a mentee you will:

  • Receive timely information and handy hints
  • Develop a network of supportive peers
  • Be invited to social events and group study sessions
  • Increase your awareness of student support services
  • Improve your teamwork skills
  • Gain a sense of belonging at university
