Peer Support Network Program
The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment Peer Support Network Program (PSN) is offered for the first time in 2014 to students in the Schools of Engineering and Information Technology.
The newly established PSN Program helps support new students with their social and academic transition into the new unfamiliar environment that is university life. It also gives opportunity to current students to share their experiences as well as gain valuable experience and skills which may assist future employability.
Why should I be part of the Peer Support Network?
The PSN Program provides a supportive environment where Peer Support Network Leaders can share their experiences with you on a weekly basis, help you understand the expectations and requirements of you as a university student and help point you in the right direction for things like student support and services available to you.
Why should I become a Peer Support Network Leader?
Taking on the role of a PSN Leader, you will be helping new students become accustomed to university life while gaining valuable experience and new skills. You will be supported by, and gain professional development from, experienced staff. Sharing your knowledge will give you a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
