Our 5 Week Student Peer Mentor Program for Trimester 1 2021 Starts Friday 5 March!  Sign up today for a Mentor to support you in your studies!  

It includes The Successful Mind in Study, Work and Life program, developed by Professor Michael E. Bernard. While you learn from your Mentor how to navigate your Deakin journey, you will also learn to develop strategies to empower yourself for success such as Growth Mindset, Goal Setting, Time Management, Resilience and more.

You will meet with your Mentor along with a small group of students weekly to talk candidly about the do’s and don’ts of Uni life. You will attend larger workshops and our very important social events to have some laughs.  Experienced Mentors are also available daily via our Online Drop-In-Station.
