Access Connections Mentoring Program
Join the Access Connections Mentoring Program and help to challenge, motivate, inspire and empower the next generation of undergraduate students.
The Access Connections Program connects University of Melbourne undergraduate students from under-represented backgrounds with mentors from our alumni community.
For Alumni Mentors
Signing up as a mentor is a simple process and only takes a few minutes. We accept registrations at any time of the year. Once you register we will contact you to advise on the next steps in the mentoring process.
"It's a delight to help mentees put their career ideas into tangible shapes and to think about the practical steps that edge them closer to their aspirations. Mentors don't know it all, but mentees seem to feel that the know-how and know-who we do have is worth sharing."

Eligible students are emailed directly when applications are open for each intake. Mentees must be enrolled in the 2nd or 3rd year of an undergraduate degree and have gained entry to the University via the Access Melbourne scheme.
"Before I started the mentoring program I was considering deferring uni. The advice I was given motivated me to strive further than I originally planned and now I am looking at completing Honours after my third year and potentially studying abroad for post-graduate studies."
