Welcome to the Melbourne Peer Mentor Program

The Melbourne Peer Mentor Program is designed to support you as you enter the University of Melbourne community as a new undergraduate student. As part of the program, you will meet new friends, build personal connections, get insider insights, and learn how to connect with the rich array of opportunities, activities and services available through your first year and beyond.

As a first-year student, you are automatically part of the program, so it’s easy to turn up and start having fun! All commencing students are automatically part of the program, so once you’ve submitted your preferences and been matched with your group, all you need to do is turn up and start having fun!

If you’re in second year or above, you can apply to be a Melbourne Peer Mentor to help new students transition and enjoy their first semester.

What are the benefits of the Melbourne Peer Mentor Program?

  • Meet other students, have fun and build friendships as you start your university journey
  • Gain valuable insights  about student life and learning at university
