MATES Application for new students

MATES provides first year students with the opportunity to connect with a student in a later year of study, a friendly face and someone who can share information about services and resources, to help you settle into student life here at Western.  MATES Mentors help new students to make social networks and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to succeed at University. The program also includes a weekly MATES Mail email with tailored just-in-time new student tips, access to the MATES vUWS and Western Life sites and a wealth of additional helpful resources that provide guidance to new students on where and how to access information, and the MATES private Facebook group where students can reach out with any extra questions or requests for recommendations.

This registration form is for commencing or first year students who are interested in participating in the MATES Program as a mentee. We are currently accepting registrations for the Autumn 2024 semester & Session 1 at the Sydney City Campus .

Please Note: Fields with * are required as mandatory fields and must be filled in.
