Giving back

Your support means our students benefit from greater opportunities during their time at AUT – so they’re more likely to succeed, become ‘great graduates’ and make a difference in the world.

Ways to support us

Giving to AUT might come in the form of a monetary donation towards scholarships or prizes, by making a bequest, or by partnering with us in other ways – like becoming a mentor or taking part in industry events.

As alumni, you already know the benefits of higher education and how it can shape our lives. Find out how you can work with us and help shape the lives of our future alumni.

Mentoring

mentor

Mentoring is a valuable and rewarding experience for both mentors and mentees. The mentoring relationship connects alumni, who are experienced industry professionals, with current students and recent alumni so they can share insights and support the workforce of the future.

Your role as a mentor

When you join the mentoring programme as a mentor, we will match you with a mentee who is studying in a similar area or seeking knowledge and experience in your profession.

You will have a one-on-one mentoring relationship with your mentee. You will focus on identifying and enhancing their employability skills, and developing valuable networks for their transition into the workplace.

Benefits of being a mentor
