Ask Alumni

Connect. Chat. Inspire.

University of Melbourne students are connecting with amazing alumni mentors in ever greater numbers. As our programs grow, we want to make sure that every student and alumni community member has the chance to get involved.
Ask Alumni is a new, informal mentoring program that helps current students to connect with alumni. Sign up at any time and have informative conversations on a range of topics. No matter where you are in the world or how much time you are able to commit, there is something to gain.
Mentoring in the time it takes to have a cup of coffee.


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. 

For full details of the University’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) visit our dedicated information page.
