Whether it's learning support, mentoring, industry experience, or landing your first job - it's all within reach and we'll help you get there. Join our connected learning community and BE Successful!
First Step mentoring program
There's a lot to take in during your first year at uni, so why not learn from those who've already been there? First STEP connects you with an academic mentor who you'll meet with, one-to-one, throughout the session. You might discuss your university experience, challenges or how to prepare for a successful career. You will also be assigned a peer mentor (3rd year student) who will guide you and offer advice in a small group setting.
How would you like to be mentored by an industry professional? If you’re a female student in second year or above in the Faculty of Business and Economics, you have the opportunity to apply for one-to-one mentoring from experts in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)
Want to boost your grades and meet new people? PAL offers weekly sessions to help improve your grades in most first-year units. When you join PAL, you’ll learn from our best performers, discover how to get ahead in your subjects and stay organised, and meet other students.
Student Representative Program
Are you passionate about improving the learning experience and sharpening your communication skills? As a unit representative you are the bridge between the students and teaching staff, representing the voice of your fellow students. Your feedback helps to shape the future success of our Faculty’s units.
Unit Representatives then have the opportunity to become Department Representatives, and regularly meet with the Head of Departments and Executive Dean.

BE Successful: iLearn and KickStart
Once you’re enrolled in your degree, you’ll have access to our BE Successful iLearn unit. Here you’ll find all the information you need to get the most out of uni life. It’s also our official communication channel so you’ll be kept up to date with everything you need to know about scholarships, internships and exams.
Our award-winning KickStart program is also on iLearn.

“I can’t stress the importance of taking advantage of the amazing programs that are on offer, as you never know where an unconventional journey may lead you.”
Bachelor of Arts with Bachelor of Commerce
“I was unsure of so much when I first started uni. Like the difference between a tutorial and a lecture. Or how exams would work, or how to borrow a book from the library, or the best ways to be productive when studying. Plus, it was a big change coming from high school where I saw my regular friends and was comfortable with how things were going. I knew it definitely wasn’t going to be easy, so I sought tips… one tip, which I still try to follow, was to get involved with as many things as possible.”
