Who are the peer leaders?

As part of the Student Peer Leader Network, peer leaders deliver a range of services, programs, and events to support the student community in the following areas:

  • careers and employability
  • global learning (study abroad & exchange)
  • English language and culture
  • transition and wellbeing

Events and activities run by peer leaders

  • Melbourne Talks

    Develop your English language skills and learn about Australian culture and academic life with other students through fun, peer-led activities. This free program is open to all international students new to the University of Melbourne. Please visit Melbourne Talks for program information and dates.

  • Careers drop-in with student peer leaders

  • Partnerships and collaborations

    Student peer leaders also partner with other teams across the university to support various student initiatives relating to wellbeing, work rights and skill development, and social interactions. The free meal packs program has been supported by the Student Peer Leader Network since the start of the pandemic and it aims to provide students in need with access to free food.
