Mentoring Program


The ACT Branch operates a mentoring program to assist members who are studying international relations at tertiary level with queries relating to their specific research topics.  This assistance may be one-off, or periodic, but is not intended to take the form of continuous intensive mentoring over an extended period.


Mentors will be sourced from the Branch’s senior professional membership and will comprise individuals who are serving or have served at senior levels in international areas of government or related areas of academia.  Mentors have extensive experience and first-hand expertise in their particular fields of research.
