Student Support Academic Mentors

The Student Support Academic Mentors offer one-on-one confidential assistance to students who are seeking support and advice across a variety of academic issues. The Student Support Academic Mentors is a Faculty of Arts initiative committed to improving student success, health and wellbeing.

We encourage you to use the Student Support Academic Mentors services during your studies to ensure you are on track throughout your studies, prepare yourself for successful degree completion and a rewarding career.

Please note, the SSAMs' services are still available online - please email your preferred mentor for a Zoom chat.
