Mentor program

Our experienced students (Mentors) provide valuable insight and resources to help you succeed in your study. Regardless of how confident you feel socially and academically, there is so much value in being part of our Mentor Program.

Our Student Peer Mentor Program includes The Successful Mind in Study, Work and Life student guide, 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 have the opportunity to attend larger workshops and group discussions and there are social events as well.  Experienced Mentors are also available daily via our Online Drop-In-Station.
