This study recognizes and addresses a deficit in research on student support tool of peer mentoring. The purpose of this paper is to examine and better understand the relationship between peer mentoring and student academic success. Based on secondary reviews and a South Pacific university context, a conceptual model is drawn and a research methodology is proposed. This paper argues that a number of factors affect the effectiveness of peer mentoring which in turn affects student academic performance. This study is useful in setting the premise for future large scale empirical research. Tertiary institutions, student support learning centres, scholars and educators will benefit from the suggested model.
