Mentoring with Wirltu Yarlu

Our mentors work one-on-one with students to assist with coursework, assignments and study skills. These sessions are student driven and determined by their academic needs.

Mentors are expected to help students to develop academically, and to foster their independent learning skills.

Mentoring is offered to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the University of Adelaide and also to Year 10s, 11s, and 12s in our senior school program, Karnkanthi.
