The College Peer Coaches and Mentors are student ambassadors and can assist students to achieve academic success as they connect students to a range of academic and personal support services at the College and UOW. 

Peer Coaches provide 1:1 drop-in sessions at Learning Hub. They can assist students with referencing, how to understand assessment questions, navigate online student resources such as Turnitin, Subject Moodle sites, Learning Coop and Studiosity. Peer Coaches will be available for consultation week days in the Learning Hub.

Peer Student Mentors are paired up with new students post orientation for 4 weeks through weekly sessions that introduce students gradually to UOW College and UOW systems. Each week PSM conduct pre-arranged activities to orientate students to understanding SOLS, UOW email, printing, UOW apps, time management and study skills; and academic considerations.
