Peer mentors are current CCCU students who are here to share their own experiences with you to help you settle into studying at the University. This unique perspective will enable you to talk with one of your peers to ask any questions you feel you’d like answers too from someone who has recently gone through the application process to becoming a CCCU student.

Some of the benefits that can come from having a peer mentor include:

  • Feeling supported while gaining practical help from one of your peers
  • Learning from the knowledge and experience of an experienced student
  • Widen your network of friends across the University
  • Increase your confidence in social and academic situations as a new student

 

Having a mentor was extremely helpful! It has made my time at University very happy and I feel very positive. I used to feel very guilty when taking a rest from study but my mentor has helped me to understand that resting is just as important. I really enjoy seeing my mentor
