MyCQU - Student Mentors

Student Mentors


The Student Mentor Program assists new students in undergraduate and postgraduate courses to quickly feel at home at CQUniversity. Student Mentors have made it through their first year of study, acquiring a great deal of information along the way, making them the perfect guide to support new students.


If you are a first-year student, your Student Mentor is here to assist you during your first year of study. All our students studying undergraduate or postgraduate courses can join a Mentor group of their choice through our First-Year Hangout & Mentor Support Moodle page.

Follow these steps to connect with a Student Mentor:

  1. Visit the First Year Hangout & Mentor Support unit in Moodle
  2. 'Enrol' using your student email
  3. Ask a question in the open forum or meet the Mentors and choose a Mentor group
  4. Check-in weekly (or more) and save the site in your favourites
  5. You can revisit the site at any time in your Moodle list.

Each Mentor will have a limited number of Mentees, and the groups will close once each Mentor group is filled. You can post questions in your group, share information and email your Mentor directly (please use your student email).


If you decide you would like to change Mentors at any time, please let your Mentor know that you would like to leave the group. You are able to elect to leave the group by going to 'Choose your Mentor Group' and changing your choice. If other Mentors are available, you can then opt to join their group via the same process.


If you are unable to see any Mentor groups when you join the First Year Hangout & Mentor Support space (groups will become available one week prior to Orientation); please notify us on and we will manually allocate you to a Mentor as soon as we can.
