Share your experience with others

The faculty Peer Mentoring Program is designed to provide new students with the knowledge and skills to adapt to and succeed at university. 

We need high-performing students who are eager to share ‘insider’ information to help others fit in and feel confident with their studies. Our program is an informal way for new students to meet people, engage in activities and receive ongoing peer support.

We also need ambassadors to excite prospective science students through event support, online engagement and student tours.

If you are research-minded, there are also opportunities to assist with exciting and innovative laboratory and field work.

Take this opportunity to make an important contribution. Help create a vibrant learning environment within the Faculty of Sciences today.

Student ambassador benefits

  • Develop career readiness skills including marketing, communications, administration, social media, customer service, research and critical thinking.
  • Gain transferable professional and personal skills that will develop your employability and enhance your resume.
  • Develop and expand your networks with fellow students and academics through involvement in the Faculty of Sciences community.
  • Use this experience to count towards their Adelaide Graduate Award.
