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 who are under-represented in higher education 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 any time of the year. Once you register we will contact you to advise on the next steps in the mentoring process.
"Access Connections is a fantastic way to connect with students and be part of their evolving careers. It's a hugely positive program, I think everyone with a bit of spare time should give mentoring a try!"
Access Connections Mentor
If you are a student admitted via the Access Melbourne or Graduate Access scheme you may be eligible to participate in the Access Connections Mentoring Program. Eligible students through the Access Melbourne scheme are emailed directly when applications are open for the program. Mentees must be enrolled in the 2nd or 3rd year of an undergraduate degree. Applications for next year will open in January 2019.
“With such great matching, my mentor and I were completely at ease to get down to big questions straight away. I can’t recommend this program more, and the insight I have gained is invaluable as I embark on life after university. I feel so much more confident and prepared, while also knowing that I have someone with industry experience who I can meet up with for more wisdom for years to come.”
