Which mentoring program is right for you?

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 (SHS). 

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.
