Become a mentor

Mentoring a student in the Shilling Club


Volunteering your time while you are at University is a fantastic way to develop your skills and make a difference to your and other students’ experiences.

Mentoring Opportunities

Mentors are not tutors but students who understand what it takes to succeed in university studies. As a mentor, you would be involved in meeting with new students (individually and in groups) to help them become established on campus. Throughout the year, you would have the opportunity to guide and support students who may be new to university or even new to New Zealand, to work with local high schools, and to become involved in orientation events.

If you would like be involved in the programme or find out further information please email Jane Hall, Mentoring Coordinator at jane.hall@canterbury.ac.nz.
