This program includes 2 arms, School of Psychology Peer Mentoring Undergraduate Program and School of Psychology Peer Mentoring Honours Program.
Undergrad Program: The Psychology Peer Mentoring Undergrad Program supports first year students to transition into studying in the School of Psychology. Groups of 2-3 third year mentors run hour-long weekly mentoring sessions across term 1, with small groups of first year mentees to help students adjust to life at university. Flexible mentoring sessions are student-need centric, and aim to cover material covering academic, social, university and career resources and information.
Honours Program: The Psychology Peer Mentoring Honours Program supports students to thrive in their honours year. Groups of 2-3 PhD or Post-doctoral candidates run hour-long mentoring sessions 3 times a term with small groups of honours mentees. 8-10 mentoring sessions are run across the year. Mentoring sessions are student-need centric and informal, and aim to provide social support, advice and resources on managing well in during honours.
