Alumni Mentor Program

Undergraduate students must have completed a minimum of eight subjects to be eligible to apply. Postgraduate students at any level can apply. Exchange or Study Abroad students visiting Bond are not eligible for the Alumni Mentor Program.

All applicants must also have a minimum grade point average of 2.0. 

Mentee places are not guaranteed, as they are determined by the number of suitable alumni mentor applications. Students in their final year of study will be given priority in the matching process.
