The program

UniMentor is a university-wide program that aims to assist you in adjusting to university life by providing you with the opportunity to be matched with mentors who can answer your questions. Your mentors are students in second year or above, studying the same or a similar course to you. UniMentor is available for undergraduate students and for postgraduate coursework students.

For more information about Postgraduate UniMentor click here

All full degree international students will automatically be assigned mentors prior to their arrival to Perth. Domestic and Student Exchange & Study Abroad students must register their interest in being matched with a mentor.

As part of the program, you will meet with your mentor in a small group of commencing students (mentees) at a facilitated UniMentor linkup during your orientation week. You will be matched with mentors from your degree-specific major or if you haven’t determined your major, then your “area of interest”. This group can meet regularly during semester – at times which you organise together – to socialise and discuss issues that may be concerning you. Contact can also take place by telephone or email if you prefer.

Why you should join

Here are five good reasons why you should join:

  1. You will get all the inside information from your mentor about how things happen around uni and your faculty.
  2. You will meet a more experienced student who has ‘been there and done that’. They know how you feel and are here to help you adjust to University life.
  3. You will meet other new students who are doing your course.
  4. Your mentor will be a point of contact for any questions or problems you might have.
  5. You will be a part of a great scheme that can offer you support now and in the future.

Making the most of UniMentor

  • Be enthusiastic and continue to meet with your mentor group throughout semester.
  • Contact the UniMentor staff if you would like assistance or have concerns about your mentor.
  • Feel free to ask as many questions of your mentor as you need – no question is too silly.

Tell your mentor when you are settled and feel independent. They need to know when they have done their job well. Remember you can always re-contact them at any time.

Signing up for a mentor

All commencing students have the opportunity to be assigned a UniMentor from their area of study. You will meet your mentor as part of your orientation activities. The contact with your mentor can be maintained for as little as six weeks or until the end of your first year of study at UWA.

If you would like a mentor please register your interest.

Joining the program late

If you missed your UniMentor linkup as part of O-Week, it's not too late.

We can match you with a UniMentor if you:

  • missed your orientation activities during O-Week and the opportunity to be linked with a mentor
  • initially felt settled but feel you may need some additional support and contact
  • would like to re-establish the contact with your assigned mentor.

If you complete this form, we will match you with a UniMentor from your area of interest as soon as possible. If you’re not sure which area of interest you require a mentor from, contact the program staff and we can assist you and facilitate the contact with your mentor.
