Mentoring student one to one

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

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 mentors who are all established in their chosen fields and work for leading employers such as Al Jazeera, Google, PWC, 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 schemes, you will need to be able to commit to a minimum of five sessions over a six month period. These sessions would usually take place at your mentors’ workplace – although sessions can also be arranged via telephone or Skype, especially if you are matched with an international mentor. 

For the first time this academic year, we will be offering two mentoring cycles to give you the chance to be matched at different stages throughout the year:

•    Cycle 1 – November until May
•    Cycle 2 – April until October (applications open in January/February)

Applications for Cycle 1 close on 11 October. Apply here.
