ArtsEd Peer Mentoring Program


The Peer Mentoring Program connects first year ArtsEd students to students who have progressed further in their degree and are able to share their insights they have learnt along the way. The five-week program facilitates social connections and guidance in accessing academic support and networks to help you feel connected and achieve success in your time at Deakin.

Your ArtsEd Mentor will be experienced student from the Faculty of Arts and Education who genuinely cares about your success. They will be able to share their knowledge, answer your university-related queries as well as provide you guidance on where to access and how to use Deakin's resources and services so that your first trimester or first year at Deakin is less stressful and more enjoyable.

Registrations for T2 2022 have closed. You can still complete an EOI form for later trimesters.

Got any questions?

What other programs are available to me right now?

As a Deakin student, you have access to different mentoing programs and opportunities to develop your work-ready skills, while making a difference for new students at Deakin and contributing back to the student community.

Likewise, if you are a new student, you get to learn new skills and take on university life in a fun, supportive environment that builds communities and fosters positive engagement.

You can view all mentoring programs available currently at the Students Helping Students Hub.

Are there any more ways I can get involved on campus?

Yes. Clubs, Associations, and Society engagement is a valuable extra-curricular experience to list on resume when you are seeking internships or graduate roles, it’s a great way to get involved, make like-minded friends, and contribute to the student community.

Clubs and Societies are entirely student-led, and each club hosts several events and social functions, fundraisers, and get-togethers each trimester. Here are a couple of discipline specific Clubs and Societies in the Faculty of Arts & Education, however you can find the full list of clubs at DUSA, or even start your own!
