Peer Mentoring Program

Students doing group work

In a 3-week program (Week 1-3), new intake students who registered for the program are matched up with a peer mentor from the School of Science, who will provide mentoring support to ease their transition to university life.

Peer mentors will share their knowledge and answer questions about adjusting to life at Monash to new intake students during the 3-week program.

Each week will have a specific theme and mentors are expected to share their own university experience regarding each theme
