Peer Mentor applications for 2022 now open!
Help our new students settle in at uni.
Do you remember your first few weeks at uni? Getting lost on campus at every turn, not knowing where to find your textbooks, or not knowing what events were on and how you can meet new friends?
That new student feeling happens to pretty much everyone! Which is why the Peer Mentor Program was created.
Peer Mentoring is a volunteer position, and the types of things you can expect to do includes showing new students around campus, letting them know about events and social groups, and providing support or advice to make their transition to uni easier.
Our Peer Mentoring app makes meeting and guiding new students easy. Upload your profile to Vygo so new students can connect with you at the click of a button.
If you're ready to make a difference to a new student's life, apply to be a 2022 Peer Mentor today.
