About the HDR Peer Support Program
The Higher Degree Research (HDR) Peer Support Program is designed to support the transition of first year HDR candidates into UNSW. This program enables HDR candidates to share resources, tips and advice, and network with others in the program.
“I very much enjoyed the program for a number of reasons. The hustle and bustle of commencing a program I was able to meet with like-minded people to discuss the various enjoyments and difficulties while scanning in site for more experienced students.” – Joshua Karras, 2021 Peer Support Mentee
“The Peer Support Program is an enjoyable journey that I wish I would have the opportunity to join in my first year! As a mentor, it's a great opportunity to make friends with a fellow mentor and a group of intelligent mentees from different backgrounds. I enjoyed the time when we "happy warriors" exchanged ideas and thoughts.” – Ava Yu, 2021 Peer Support Mentor
