Student for a Semester mentor program

Help while you study

We understand that becoming a university student while you are still at High School is really rewarding but equally daunting. We want you to enjoy every moment of your semester at Bond so we are pleased to offer the Student for a Semester Mentoring Program.

What is the Student for a Semester mentoring program?

As a Student for a Semester participant, you will have your very own Bond Student Mentor to guide you through every step of the process; an experienced student who you can call upon any time during the semester to point you in the right direction, or meet you on campus for a chat.

Who will be my mentor?

Our Bond Student Mentors are all current students, in the final stages of their Bond University program. They are also experienced and qualified Student Ambassadors, who have been assessed on their reliability and leadership qualities. Many of our mentors are current Scholars, some have completed the Student for a Semester program, and all of them know exactly how it feels to start university for the first time.

You will be paired with a mentor who is the same gender as you and who is undertaking a similar course of study.*

*Subject to availability

How will my mentor help me?

Your mentor will be available throughout your semester at Bond. You may wish to contact them for any issues you have such as your enrolment process, setting up your IT account, finding your first class, handing in your first assignment, preparing for your exam, or if you just need someone to meet you on campus for a chat.

Your mentor will contact you throughout the semester via text or email, just to see how you are going with your studies, and your overall Bond experience. They will also attend your Award Ceremony* at the end of the semester, to celebrate the completion of your subject (*subject to their availability).

When will I meet my mentor?

Your mentor will attend the Student for a Semester Orientation event on the Friday of Orientation Week, to give you the chance to meet face-to-face and receive their contact details.

Do I have to have a mentor?

It's not compulsory to have a Student for a Semester Mentor, but we're pretty sure you'll appreciate the chance to have a Bondy to call upon if you have any issues. If you do wish to 'opt out' of the mentoring program, please let the Student for a Semester Program Coordinator know by emailing [email protected] or phoning +61 7 5595 1067.
