Transition Services

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


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 them for at least the first 6 weeks of the semester and beyond if required.

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.

Applications are now open for Semester 1, 2018 for more information about how to register your interest visit the UniMentor webpages. Applications close 27 November 2017.


ConnectMe@UWA which was launched in 2011, involves UniMentors assisting new undergraduate and postgraduate students prior to their arrival to UWA. Mentors contact new students through telephone, email and social media and provide ongoing support and advice. Through this program there are opportunities to volunteer at social activities and during excursions.
