School of Materials Science and Engineering Undergraduate Peer Mentoring Program

The School of Materials Science and Engineering Peer Mentoring program aims to connect first year students with more experienced undergraduate students (mentors) who are already familiar with the school and university.

Mentors share their knowledge and tips about university life with new first year students throughout the first Term within a structured program, which includes meetups, fun activities and events that allow everyone to network, make friends and settle into university life.

Each student is also assigned an academic adviser who can assist with any difficulties transitioning from school to university life and give advice about subject selection, course requirements, enrolment, academic standing or student exchange.
