Every year, MedSoc organises group mentoring for the new incoming freshers and one-on-one mentoring for all Phase 1 students. Mentoring is a rewarding opportunity for you to give back to the UNSW community, gain new skills and make some awesome new friends :). All mentors will be provided with a certificate of appreciation (provided that requirements are met) and mentoring will appear on your university extra-curricular statement.
And as always, we need volunteers from Phase 2 and 3 to make it happen. So if you’re interested in group mentoring or one-on-one mentoring or both, please fill out the form
- Group mentoring: A trio or pair of mentors will be assigned a mentoring group of about 10 freshers. Your group will be expected to meet at least 3 times over the first semester and we have set these dates out. However, we understand that your own uni studies might clash and so there is a degree of flexibility. You will be provided with a mentoring guide and session scaffold. However, within sessions, there is a lot of flexibility and you are free to proceed as you wish. You aim is to help freshers feel welcome and accustomed to UNSW and to facilitate new friendships
- One to mentoring: As a mentor, you’re assigned with a younger student to guide them over the year. It involves informing them of opportunities they may not have heard of, sharing revision tips that you’ve picked up during the years and just being there to answer the questions they’re too scared to ask someone else. During the year we’ll send you reminders about information to relay to your mentees. This role is really flexible, it’s really up to you where you want to take it!
We are looking for about 90 mentors for group mentoring and 50 mentors for 1-1 mentoring. You guys are welcome to apply for both We look forward to your applications and will provide you with additional information
You have until Feb 21st to complete this form so make sure you fill it in ASAP!
