Student Mentoring


UniSA International Student Mentoring Program

Attention retired, part time or any social workers interested in being a part of the UniSA International Student Mentoring Program

UniSA – the School of Psychology, Social Work and Social Policy is introducing a SW mentoring program called Connect with Your Future, aiming to help our newly arrived international social work students to have a better understanding of social work in an Australian context, as well as improving their professional SW and conversational English skills.

We are looking for retired or part time social workers who are interested in being a volunteer mentor of this program. The role of the volunteer Mentors would be to mentor an international student and to assist students to articulate their professional social work role, purpose and identity. In addition we hope the volunteer mentors will  act as a role model, listener and to be a professional network resource and broker in the social work sector. We believe that you can make an impact on student learning and the social work profession by helping to consolidate the application of social work knowledge for newly arrived international students.  We envisage this mentoring role would be a time commitment of 1-2 hours per week or fortnight depending in your availability.

Uni SA at Magill campus has a new community centre where we would make the space available for these meetings to take place.

If you are interested in one of these volunteer positions then please email your name, contact number and email address to Sophie Diamandi on or Mobile 0438 220 663.
