Whether you’re looking for a study partner or stepping-stone into your chosen career, we offer a range of mentoring opportunities at all levels of our student community.
Just arrived? Sign up to be matched with a peer mentor. This is a great way to meet other students and tap into all the good stuff on campus.
Most faculties offer peer-based mentoring for first-year students as part of the orientation process. You’ll be matched with a senior-year student who will show you around campus and give you all the information you need to start the year on the right foot.
Faculties often have close industry ties to leaders in their field, and offer industry networking events and mentoring programs.
The University of Sydney Business School’s Lucy Program, for example, matches undergraduates with senior managers in the private and public sector.
Whether you are studying or a recent graduate, it’s an excellent way to make contacts and learn from a prospective employer.
Formalised mentoring programs are generally structured with agreed objectives and outcomes from the beginning, to help ensure you get the most out of the relationship.
Some clubs and societies also offer leadership and networking mentor schemes. Got a great start-up idea? Incubate can help source seed money and introduce you to potential sponsors.
Some faculties offer peer-based mentoring at every stage of your degree. You'll usually find out about these opportunities through myUni and Sydney Mail.
As an international student, you’ll be part of a first-year transition program and have ongoing support from International Student Advisers.
