1. What is SET4ANU Mentoring?
Set4ANU is a fun, free program designed to prepare students to excel at The Australian National University through holistic support during their first semester at ANU.
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. New students are given a later year student mentor who can help you make new friends, answer your questions, and share their knowledge and networks to help you settle into your study here at ANU. They also have experience living in Canberra and studying remotely, so can also be a useful contact person for any general questions or concerns wherever you are in the world.
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!
2. Register to Get a Mentor
Registrations have opened for new ANU students to sign up to have a later year student as a mentor during their first semester. If you are interested in getting a mentor for Semester 1 2022, please register here.
All first year students are welcome to attend our events and activities, whether they have a mentor or not. Like our facebook page to keep up to date with our events.
3. Register to Become a Mentor
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!
Registrations to be a Set4ANU Mentor for Semester 1 2022 are open now. Register to be a Mentor here
4. Paid Employment with SET4ANU (for Student Leaders)
Set4ANU employs ANU students to become student leaders.
Student Leaders are students who have stepped up to help run Set4ANU's events, online support, and other aspects of the mentoring program. This is a paid (casual) position open to current students of ANU. Experience as a Set4ANU mentor is highly desirable but not required.
