Peer Mentoring Program

The School of Psychology Peer Mentoring Program has been running since the year 2000 with the aim of helping First Year students studying psychology make a successful transition to university. In this program, a small group of First Year students are mentored by Third Year students majoring in psychology.

Many of the skills that are addressed in this mentoring program are those that are required by all university students, and as appropriate, the content of the program is tailored to the needs of psychology students. Mentors cover topics like researching and investigating at a university-level, organisation and exam preparation, effective communication skills and careers within psychology. This program also provides a valuable opportunity for new students to get to know other students and begin building a social network.
