A new group of nervous and excited students will commence studies in Trimester 1 at Deakin University in 2014 and the Faculty of Arts and Education would like to invite you to become a peer mentor, as part of our support program for new students.
By becoming a peer mentor you have the opportunity to assist first year students through their transition into life at university.
What is peer mentoring?

- Translate university language, programs and requirements for new students
- Provide a positive role model to new students
- Act as an information conduit between staff and students
- Help new students have a sense of belonging at university
- Refer students to appropriate services for support
