Deakin’s peer mentors are here to support you during your studies – join our online session to meet them
Welcome to Deakin! We’re thrilled to have you on board in 2023.
While starting university is an exciting time, we know that adjusting to the new routine can feel a little daunting at first. That’s why Deakin has peer mentors – experienced students who understand what uni life is like firsthand – to guide your transition into Deakin and help you make a great start to your studies with a range of programs.
Beyond your orientation, you can also rely on the support of specialised peer mentors who are available to help you find answers for your queries, understand your subjects and improve your academic skills.
Want to know more? Join our online session!
We’re hosting an interactive online session during Trimester 1 orientation to give you the opportunity to meet some of Deakin’s peer mentors and have your questions answered.
Our PASS, Maths, Writing and faculty peer mentors will discuss their experiences studying at Deakin and the support they can provide you through our mentoring programs. Learn what it’s like to be a mentee and mentor and find out more about how you can connect with other students and access support when you need it.
