Who are the Business Mentors?  

The Business Mentors are students who are already currently studying at UniSA, and know what it is like being a new student at university. 

How can the Business Mentors assist new students?

The Business Mentors work in pairs and are allocated new students which they then contact via email. Your Business Mentors will regularly contact you throughout the study period to see how everything is going with starting university and if you have any questions.

Social Events

Throughout the study period, the Business Mentors participate in social events and invite all new students to attend. These events are created for new students to meet up with your assigned Business Mentors. It will allow you to ask any questions that you might have regarding university. It is also a time for new students to socialise with other students over free meals and activities. At these events there will be foods, drinks and other perks with a multicultural focus.
