Arts Network Mentoring Program

The Arts Network Mentoring Program is about giving new first years a warm welcome and a great introduction to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. It's a chance for first years to meet other new students they'll be studying with. They also benefit from all the wit and wisdom of our fantastic senior students, who volunteer to be mentors for the program. The main objective of Arts Network is to help to build an encouraging and supportive learning environment and sense of identity and belonging for all students in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, especially for incoming first year students.

Visit the Arts Network Website for further information.


Each semester there is an orientation session run for Undergraduate students. Make sure you take full advantage of the activities provided which include vital information about making the change to uni life.

For Postgraduate students the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences runs a Postgraduate welcome and orientation. This is an opportunity for new postgraduate students to meet the staff of the faculty and their fellow classmates, and to learn about the important services available to them as a student at the university.
