What's involved

This is a free program and is designed to support you in the first few weeks of your university life.

You should expect bonds and friendships to develop through shared experiences from fellow new students such as yourself, as well as the experiences from PSN Leaders.

You will be paired with a PSN Leader, who is a current Deakin student, as well as be included in a small group of other new students such as yourself.

Weekly meetings will be arranged where your PSN Leader will provide guidance, advice and insight, both academic and social in order to help ease your transition to becoming an independent learner. Leaders will also be able to direct you to the right resources and support.

The Program is also strongly aligned with your school and is guided by academic contributions.

How to become a Member

To sign up to become a PSN member, and have an experienced leader meet with you to help answer your questions in the first few weeks of the year, please complete the online registration form.
