1. What is SET4ANU Mentoring?

More Information

Set4ANU is a fun, free program designed to prepare students to excel at The Australian National University through holistic support during the first semester orientation and transition period. This encompasses both O-Week events and the semester-long Set4ANU Mentoring program.

Are you feeling: 

  • Unsure about how to approach your study choices or getting help when you're stuck?
  • Confused about the various administrative and online systems across the university?
  • Lost around campus?
  • In need of friendly faces, or of people with similar interests to you?
  • Overwhelmed by the sheer number of things you need to set up, enrol in, choose, find, collect, buy, and learn?

The Set4ANU Mentoring Program aims to provide new students with holistic support, giving guidance in both living and learning as an ANU student. New students are put in small (2-5 people) groups and given a later year student mentor. In these mentoring groups, you can make new friends, ask your mentor questions, and leverage their knowledge and networks to help you settle into your study here at ANU. They have also experienced living in Canberra for a while, so can also be a useful contact person for any general questions or concerns if you are moving to Canberra.

We have three key activities which you can use to transition to ANU smoothly:

  • Our semester-long mentoring program, designed to help you develop the skills and networks you need to be a successful ANU student
  • Social events and online community, where you can make friends and meet others with the same interests as you
  • Activites and workshops to help you think about succeeding as an ANU student

Remember that Set4ANU mentors are later year students volunteering to help first semester students, and are not responsible for you or your learning. They should not be asked for academic tutoring and cannot give official course advice, although they can point you in the direction of suitable people for this!

3. Register to Become a Mentor 

More Information

Our mentors are later year students who care about the experience of new students! They are willing to invest a bit of time over a semester getting to know and support a small group of students and want to develop their coaching and peer support skills. Our new students (mentees) are a diverse bunch from a range of backgrounds and we'd like a diverse group of mentors, so we encourage later year students from all backgrounds to apply!
