About peer mentors

Any student can contact a peer mentor, no booking required. Just fill out the form and a mentor will reply via email within two business days. We appreciate your patience. 

You will get a confirmation email from @tickets.livechat.com​. Check your Spam folder if you haven't received it.

If you cannot find peer support for your course, Ask the Library for help.

Peer mentor is someone, who has experienced the same subject as you and understands the challenges you’re facing. They can help you:

  • Understand your course content and how to approach assessment tasks
  • Prepare for exams
  • Get help with a range of computer applications, such as Excel, MYOB, Python, MS Project, SPSS, Java, C++, MATLAB, Catia or 3DExperience.

By working with your peer mentor, you will have an opportunity to find out how they achieved success with their studies and:

  • Build your academic skills
  • Create new networks
  • Improve your grades

The role of the mentor is to guide you in your studies. They are not tutors, teachers or academics, this means they can’t:

  • Give you the answer – but they will help you work it out.
  • Work directly on assessable material – but they can help you apply what you’re learning.
  • Proofread your work – they’ll direct you to the Academic Skills Team from the Library's Study Support Hub to help with this.
Peer mentoring is available to students, who excel in their courses. You will find more information on Becoming a volunteer peer mentor page.
