The Postgraduate Peer Mentoring Program exists to make the adjustment to uni a little bit easier by connecting students and helping them find their feet. We connect postgraduate students starting at Monash (mentees) with experienced postgraduate students (mentors) who offer guidance, advice and friendship during a Mentee’s transition to Monash life. 

We offer all students in the program opportunities to meet new people and develop mentoring and leadership skills. See your personal and professional growth as you progress through our program, from starting as a mentee looking for support, to becoming a mentor who offers that support.

Uni is about so much more than classes and assessments – it's also about the people you meet and the relationships you form! Students involved in our peer mentoring programs have reported feeling more connected and an increased sense of belonging, which in turn can lead to improved academic performance and general wellbeing.

Join the Peer Mentoring community today!
