Access Connections Mentoring Program

The Access Connections Mentoring Program launched in 2014 with 25 pairs of students and alumni mentors. Since then it has grown to close to 200 mentoring pairs per year. The program aims to improve the post-study outcomes of students that are under-represented in higher education by providing students with an alumni mentor.

Mentoring is an informal partnership, where a more experienced mentor provides guidance and support to a current University of Melbourne student. Meetings focus on career planning and advice to build the confidence and employability of students when they transition to the workforce.

In 2018 over 200 second and third year Access Melbourne students were matched with alumni mentors as part of the Access Connections Mentoring Program.
