ITEE Internal Mentoring Program (iMentor)

iMentor aims to enrich your first year experience in ITEE by linking you with some of our more experienced student mentors. Volunteer mentors will provide you with the assistance and guidance, so you can have the best possible start at UQ. It is also a great way to extend your social network and meet new friends.

Both mentees and mentors are matched together to form groups. iMentor coordinators arrange initial introductions. Following that, mentors keep in contact with their groups and organise meetings and activities.
