Peer Mentoring



*This credential is only available to current RMIT students

Peer Mentoring has long-term benefits that extend beyond the higher education sphere. Future employees who have engaged in peer mentoring activity are more self-directed, culturally aware and have developed stronger communication and problem-solving skills.
