South West Peer Mentoring Program

The Peer Mentoring Program is a free service available for all ECU students. The program assists new students in building social and academic networks which in turn helps students adjust to university life more quickly. The goal of the program is to provide support and encouragement to first year students which will enhance their university experience. 

Having an experienced student as your mentor gives you access to a great source of information on things that are happening at university as well as answering any questions or concerns.

Mentors are good communicators who provide support to new students to make them feel welcome and make their transition into university life a little easier. Mentors can also share and pass on their experiences, such as study techniques, how to manage stress, time management and other skills aquired during their studies.

Mentors and Mentees required

If you have the desire to help others then why not offer your support to first year students starting university as a peer mentor? All mentors will receive a letter of commendation from the Dean for their participation in the program. If you wish to be a mentor please contact Ian or Kristian. Alternatively, if you are first year student and wish to join the program please download the mentee application below.
