Pathfinder

The Pathfinder program connects you with people who were in your position not too long ago. Our alumni will be there to talk to you, provide advice and give you a different perspective.

Alumni mentors attend Pathfinder events to discuss the hurdles and triumphs they may have experienced along their career paths, share knowledge on industry and leadership and transitioning from student to alumni.

Join us for a breakfast mentoring event featuring undergraduate and postgraduate panel discussions, where you will hear from our experienced alumni who were in your shoes not so long ago.
