Mentoring is a one-to-one peer support programme for all Pacific students in their first year of study.  By connecting with a mentor, first-year students receive direction, encouragement, motivation and most important of all, friendship.

All mentors are senior students with a strong understanding of university life through their own personal experiences and knowledge. They are committed to providing you with the advice and support you will need throughout the year in order to succeed here at the University.

To access the UCP Mentoring programme, students must be enrolled as a Pacific student at UC and register with the programme. All first-year UC Pacific students are assigned a mentor on registration.
