Arts and Education Peer Mentoring
Our peer mentoring program provides social and academic support to students in the Faculty of Arts and Education.
The program connects new arts and education (ArtsEd) students to established students who have progressed further in their degree and are able to share the 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 at Deakin.

They will share their knowledge, answer your university-related queries and provide guidance on where to access, and how to use Deakin's resources and services so that your first trimester or year at Deakin is less stressful and more enjoyable.
- Support new students with their uni experience.
- Build your leadership abilities and transferrable skills.
