Interested in finding a Coursework Mentor?

The MGA Coursework Mentor Program is a 12-week peer-to-peer mentor program that is open to all new graduate coursework students enrolled in their first semester. Mentors can assist you to settle into university life by:

  • sharing their knowledge and experiences;
  • familiarising you with your faculty/school and University services;
  • providing general information about your course and the temporary online learning environment that Monash has set up (they can help where possible or point you in the right direction);
  • helping you build a student network (if you are new to Australia).

This program also offers an opportunity to develop your communication skills, increase your self-confidence and a chance to make lifelong friendships.
