Become a Mentee

UOW Mentoring Program

Mentoring is often described as a professional relationship in which an experienced person assists a less experienced person in developing skills and knowledge that will enhance their professional and personal development.

Your role as a mentee

Your role as a mentee is to drive this relationship and to prioritise it as part of your professional career development. Simply put, you need to make the effort to prepare for meetings and events with your mentor to really capitalise on this great experience.

Who are the mentors?

The mentors are experienced UOW Alumni volunteering to share their work, life experience, skills and knowledge with you. Every effort is made to match mentors and students based on a mentor’s area of expertise and a student’s area of interest, however this is not guaranteed.

“The mentoring program has been one of the key highlights of my time at university. Not only has it provided an opportunity for me to increase my knowledge of the world of work, but it has also allowed me to build a relationship with an extremely talented and supportive individual from the field.” - Bachelor of Social Science (Dean's Scholar)
