Transition Services

The Transition Services team within Student Experience, offer current undergraduate and postgraduate students many volunteer opportunities. These opportunities include the UniMentor; Orientation, Open Day and ambassador roles. Please see recruitment periods and brief descriptions of each of these roles outlines below. For further information please contact transition@uwa.edu.au.

UniMentor

The UniMentor program is a fantastic way to contribute to the UWA student community and get involved in university life. 

The voluntary position of a UniMentor is open to second year and above undergraduate and postgraduate students. UniMentors help commencing undergraduate and postgraduate students settle into university life and assist them to transition into their new course of study at UWA. UniMentors are matched with new students prior to the new semester (via email) right through to the first few weeks of the semester and are available to assist their mentees during their first semester.

Once students have applied and been accepted into the UniMentor program, they are provided with comprehensive training, professional development opportunities, exclusive volunteering opportunities and invited to social events.
