Request a UniMentor
Students with a UniMentor usually settle into University life more quickly because they feel supported and connected to the University community.
Any undergraduate student (Bachelor Degree or Associate Degree) commencing their study on-campus or on-line can apply for a UniMentor

Q: How Do I Contact My UniMentor?
A: You can send each other an email via your student email account. UniMentors volunteer their time. Please respect this generosity by replying to their communications in a timely way. Your UniMentor will probably have more than one mentee and we encourage your UniMentor to facilitate a group meeting, in-person or on-line, so you can meet other new students.
Q: For How Long Does My UniMentor Help Me?
A: Your UniMentor will keep in contact for one study session. However, you may find you've developed a friendship and keep in contact for much longer, if this is what both of you want.
Q: Is My UniMentor A Tutor?
A: Your UniMentor is not a tutor and is not expected to give you specific academic help. However, they may share their study tips to help you settle in to an academic routine and can direct you to University services to help with particular concerns you might have with a unit of study or item of assessment.
Q: What If Things Aren't Working Out Between Me And My UniMentor?
Please get in touch with the UniMentor team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
