Be a student mentor

By becoming a student mentor you can help other students to succeed at university – and it looks great on your CV.

Mentoring opportunities

We have two major mentoring programmes that you can get involved with.


The UniGuide programme is designed to make the transition to university easier. We connect first-year students with a senior student who can show them how university works.

Visit the UniGuide website for more information.


Tuākana is a University-wide mentoring and tutoring programme for Māori and Pacific students. Based on the concept of older siblings (tuākana) supporting younger ones, the Tuākana programme helps students transition to university life and achieve academic success.
