Mentoring at Melbourne
Mentoring programs at the University of Melbourne connect students, alumni and professionals to help prepare students for lives of professional contribution, leadership and as active global citizens.
Through a structured one-to-one relationship students receive crucial guidance and support in the early stages of career planning. Explore our mentoring programs to find the right program for you.
In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the University is clear about its responsibility to do everything it can to reduce rates of infection in the community. The health and wellbeing of our alumni is of paramount importance to the University. We therefore ask all volunteers undertaking mentoring programs to exercise appropriate precautions when scheduling meetings with mentees. Face-to-face meetings should be changed to online meetings using web conferencing software such as Skype and Zoom, or carried out over the phone.
