Information for Mentors

Mentors in our program often tell us they find the role an enjoyable and fulfilling one. Apart from having a positive impact on the next generation, mentoring can give you a new perspective on your career and help to connect you to current research in your field at the University of Melbourne.
Mentors in this program need to be alumni of the University of Melbourne, currently employed with at least one year of professional work experience. Currently employed University of Melbourne academics and professional staff who have been with the University for over three months are also eligible. Students in our program are studying one of our undergraduate degrees and therefore are interested in meeting mentors from a diverse range of careers.

Sign up as a Mentor

Mentors who have registered between December 2018 - February 2019 will have their application considered for Semester 1 intake which takes place in April 2019. 
Please note the program will have only one intake in 2019 during Semester 1.

The benefits of mentoring

 Mentoring is often a rewarding experience and a chance to reflect on your own journey, skills and knowledge.

The structure and matching process

 This program is facilitated by University staff who will support you and your mentee throughout the program.

What should I expect from my mentee?

 A beneficial and rewarding mentoring relationship is often dependent on a mentee's initiative to engage with their mentor.

The Mentor’s Role

 Mentors challenge, motivate, inspire and empower their mentees.
