Which mentoring program is right for you?

Students Helping Students

University can be challenging, and no one understands students better than students. Experienced Deakin students are trained to help, whether you want academic, practical or social support.

No one knows what it’s like to be a student better than students do. This is one of the reasons that peer mentoring – when one trained and experienced student helps another student – is such an important part of Deakin. At Deakin, the peer mentoring programs are collectively referred to as Students Helping Students. 

If you’ve ever received help from a peer mentor, you’ll know how important these programs and relationships can be. A peer mentor may mean the difference between you passing and failing a subject, getting through a rough patch, or simply navigating something new and different that you’ve encountered at uni.

If you haven’t met with a peer mentor at Deakin yet, it might be difficult to know how a mentoring program can help you and which one is suitable for your needs.

Here are some common reasons why you might want help from a peer mentor.
