Peer mentors

We want to make your transition to university smooth and stress-free.

All new students are connected with a peer mentor – an experienced Federation student who can provide first-hand support in your first five weeks of study.

What you can expect

Your peer mentor will contact you in mid-February to introduce themselves and ask you if you have any questions about starting university. During Orientation, you'll get the chance to meet your peer mentor on campus. They can show you around, introduce you to other students, tell you about life at Federation and help you find any support staff you might need. If you miss Orientation, you can meet your peer mentor in the first week of the semester.

You'll have access to your peer mentor throughout your first month of study. If you have questions about academic requirements, support services, navigating computer systems or general student life, you can get in touch via phone or email, or arrange to meet them on campus.
