What is SLAMs?
SLAMs are volunteer students who have received a HD or DI (75+) in the relevant course and are willing to offer two hours per week during the semester from weeks 2 to 11.
SLAMs offer academic mentoring support to RMIT Business students with their academic studies.
Applications to register as a mentor are now open for 2017.
When and where?
The SLAMs room is currently located in Building 80 Level 3 room 18. You don't need to make an appointment to see a SLAM. You can check mentor availability on the SLAMs website here which is renewed each semester.
It is the SLAMs’ goal to assist you to become a self-managed learner.
- answer your specific questions when you are struggling to understand any aspects of the coursework or your assignments.
- share strategies with you on how to tackle each particular course.
SLAMs will not…
- write your assessment tasks for you.
- hand out their phone numbers or email addresses.
- provide a copy of their own course notes or previous assignments.
Please note: attending SLAMs’ sessions will not ensure that you pass. SLAMs’ cannot be held liable for your results

I believe that SLAMs has helped me score my ultimate graduate job.
The communication and teamwork skills I gained from interacting with students from all different backgrounds was invaluable. Every mentor session was different which gave me the opportunity to become versatile and quickly adapt to new situations. These skills gave me the confidence to meet with interviewers with ease and really sell my best qualities.
