Peer Academic Mentoring

How we can help you:

  • Academic skills development (reading, writing, planning, maths, stats and time management)
  • Faculty or course-specific skills and questions
  • Navigating Blackboard and OASIS
  • Searching
  • Referencing
  • Software (Microsoft Office, SPSS, EndNote).

Peer Academic Mentoring is open to Curtin students across all faculties and campuses (including OUA).

You can visit us in-person or online, and can choose to drop in during our available hours or book an appointment online (bookings are encouraged).

Face-to-face sessions are conducted on level 4 of the TL Robertson Library (B105) – ask at the Help Desk and our friendly Library staff will direct you where to go, or find it on the map.

Online sessions are conducted via BlackBoard Collaborate.

Available times

Our Peer Academic Mentors* are available at various times during teaching weeks. The best way to view their availability is by checking our booking calendar.

Our service hours are reduced during the semester break. If you need assistance outside of our available times, please Contact the Library.

*Please note that you may see any available mentor, and do not have to select someone within your faculty. Check out the “Meet your mentors!” section at the bottom of this page for detailed information about how each of our mentors can assist you.

Bookings are limited to one per student, per day. We encourage you to implement what you have learned during your appointment before booking another.

Peer Academic Mentoring is not available on Curtin-observed public holidays.

What students say about PAM

So lovely and helpful. Nice to talk and get tips from someone who is a student and you know truly understands what it’s like at the time 🙂

What students say about PAM

100/10 (that’s not a typo)… I would certainly use the service again and have already recommended it to my peers.

What students say about PAM

I am very grateful for all the support I have received from the Peer Academics recently; their support is instrumental in my academic journey. Getting [my Mentor]’s insights, along with engagement in thoughtful discussions, has really helped my learning experience. I really appreciate the team being willing to assist me, being patient and encouraging me with my coursework. Lastly, their commitment to fostering a positive and supportive learning environment has not gone unnoticed. Thank you to all involved.

What students say about PAM

I found it very helpful in not only giving me lots of advice on how to manage my study better and how to set achievable goals, but gave me a sense of relief and feel less stressed about my studies.
