Arts+ connects you with a mentor within your Arts courses from Orientation right through to your exams.

Arts+ will be there for you from day one to help you transition into university and to support you in your studies. Your mentor will be at your first tutorial to help you get to know each other.

Your mentor will let you know how to meet the expectations of your courses and help you to be an active learner by developing your confidence and academic skills. They will work with you to develop key skills for successful university study like referencing, note-taking, and searching the library databases.

Your mentor will be there to help you with: 

  • Orientation and transition support
  • Assignment support and workshops
  • Study sessions and workshops
  • Exam preparation sessions
