Pacific Mentoring Programme - Pacific Students - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

UC Pacific (UCP) Mentoring Programme

Mentoring is a one to one peer support programme for all Pacific students in their first year of study.  By connecting with a Mentor, First year students receive direction, encouragement, motivation and most important of all friendship.

All Mentors are senior students with a strong understanding of university life through their own personal experiences and knowledge. They are committed to providing you with the advice and support you will need throughout the year in order to succeed here at the University.

To access the UCP Mentoring programme, students must be enrolled as a Pacific student at UC and register with the programme. All first year UC Pacific students are assigned a mentor on registration.
