Become a Science Peer Mentor!

SPMP 2019 Logo

The Science Peer Mentor program is back! Now in its 8th year, the program has been revitalised by a new structure and hopes to be bigger and better than ever!

Senior Student Mentors look after a group of new first year Science Students and help them to transition into university, giving their time and experience to support these students. This year, a greater number and more diverse array of leadership positions are also available. A new leadership team will seek to develop events, support mentors and ensure the program is both helpful for mentees and fun for mentors.

The new program includes new volunteer positions:

  • Event Managers: Develop and run events, as well as marketing and ensuring the program runs smoothly.
  • Team Leaders: Oversee large teams of mentors in subgroups of the program such as communications, evaluations and informal events.
