Get a Mentor

With over 1000 first year students having contact with a mentor this year, mentoring is definitely worth a try. Our huge pool of student mentors have been there and know exactly what you need to know to ensure you can make a successful start to your studies, connect with fellow students and know about all the awesome things to get involved in at UC.

They volunteer their time to ensure you make the best start possible!   You can even get in touch with a mentor before you enrol here to find out what life is like at UC; this can be incredibly useful for planning your studies and time.
