Our BDA Australia national mentoring program runs for six months from March until September each year.

Mentoring provides support for our student members by adding a practical element to complement the theory learned during their studies and builds confidence in their progression to a new career in Building Design.

Student members are invited to be part of the program by their local BDA Australia chapter convenor and must be:

  • An active student member of BDA Australia (either by regular attendance at meetings or networking with BDA Australia members)
  • Over the age of 18
  • In their final year of study to become a Building Designer
  • Invited by their Chapter Convenor to be part of the mentoring program

Applications close on the 10th February each year.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact your local BDA Australia chapter convenor or the BDA&T Mentoring Co-ordinator by emailing
