Starting a PhD can be a pretty overwhelming process. You will have to become familiarised with many of the quirks and intricacies of academia and life as a RHD student at the University of Melbourne.
One of the initiatives GRIPS runs is a mentoring scheme where new PhD students can get in contact with later-year PhD students in order to talk with someone that has already gone through many of the struggles that you may face. Even if you are not struggling at this time, becoming a mentee could be a great way just to get to know some friendly faces in the department and chat about life as a PhD student.
