If you are an architecture student, signup with SONA for your opportunity to be mentored by and AIA A+ Practice professional. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity for one-on-one advice, guidance and professional support!


In the early 70s, the SA Chapter established a student mentorship scheme to bring together our youngest members of the profession with practicing architects to foster work experience opportunities and provide students with an introduction to architectural practice within the working environment.

The scheme allows for mentors and students to meet on a regular basis and discuss design, documentation, management and general issues relating to the practice of architecture and to explore the transition between university and the working environment. Our experience shows that the advice, guidance and support given by mentors helps our young colleagues to become better architects and equip them for the real world.

Conditions of Application

  • Mentors must be current registered Institute members or non-registered members employed in A+ Practices, whereby the Practice assumes the mentoring role and assigns the actual contact with SONA members at its own discretion.  Mentors may have more than one mentee.

  • Students must be enrolled in a recognised full or part-time university architectural program in their 3rd, 4th or 5th year levels and be current SONA members of the Australian Institute of Architects.

The Student Mentor Scheme is proudly presented by the Australian Institute of Architects and SONA. 

The launch of the Student Mentor Scheme Meet and Greet event is on 11 May at 5:30pm at the Institute.
