Being a HASS industry mentor


Whether you're based in Brisbane, inter-state or internationally, if you’ve completed a Bachelor of Arts or study in any of the following areas:

  • Communication, Journalism and Arts

What's Involved?

As a mentor, you will help students navigate the transition from university to work.  Don't worry if you've only just begun this journey yourself, your own valuable and unique perspectives can help to empower current students to reach their goals.

You will develop your communication and leadership skills and broaden your professional network while giving back to the UQ community.

The program runs twice throughout the year (March to June and August to October) and includes:

  • Regular mentoring sessions - at least four meetings in-person/phone/or online 
  • Networking events (online or in person)
  • Feedback via online survey

The program can be fully completed online so whether you are Brisbane based or interstate/overseas we would encourage you to get involved.
