Brush up on your leadership skills, meet like-minded students outside your network and contribute to the graduate student community at Monash.


What’s special about the MGA’s Mentor Program? 

Unique: This is the only peer-to-peer mentor program at Monash for graduate coursework students across all faculties. 

Flexible: The program is online and you will be able to conduct meetings around different schedules.

Personalised: Mentors and mentees will be paired by the MGA’s Mentor Coordinator based on faculty/department.

Structured: The program commences with a welcome session to kick off the program, followed by six mandatory touch points throughout the semester. This consists of four consecutive touch points from Week 2 to Week 5 and two further touch points between Week 6 to Week 9 of Semester 2.

Engaged: Mentors will be well-prepared and trained for the program. Students can expect a high level of engagement and mentors can expect to receive excellent leadership skills development.

Guided: Mentors will be guided and nurtured by the MGA’s Mentor Coordinator throughout the program.

  • have mastered the ins and outs of the new online learning environment;
  • are willing to draw from their own experience to help first year students navigate the graduate student journey;
