The University of Westminster offers the chance to join its award winning mentoring scheme, which aims to connect students with professionals for a long term mentoring relationship.

A student being mentored

Our committed mentors can help you find your feet, ensuring you have the confidence to take your next steps to a successful future.

Why apply?

Our mentors can provide a wealth of knowledge, sharing their years of experience and wisdom to make sure your journey ahead goes smoothly. We are fortunate to have a diverse pool of experienced alumni who are all established in their chosen fields and work for leading employers such as Al Jazeera, Google, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Universal Music and Urbanist Architecture.

Having a mentor can help you:

  • Develop a solid foundation of skills to launch or further your career
  • Understand the professional world of the sector you have chosen or wish to enter
  • Reflect on your existing experience and motivate you to reach your potential
  • Grow your network of contacts

To take advantage of the mentoring scheme, you will need to be able to commit to a minimum of five sessions over a six month period (between November and June).This is usually at a mentors’ workplace – although sessions can also be arranged via Skype.

Applications close on 5 October. Apply now.

‘Ask a Mentor’ service

If you can’t commit to the six month programme, but would appreciate having a one-off conversation with an experienced professional in your sector of interest, you can still benefit from our ‘Ask a Mentor’ service.

Further information about these opportunities can be found on our mentoring page or by contacting us at [email protected]. We hope you make the most of these resources, and feel inspired to develop your career.
