The University of Westminster student mentoring scheme aims to connect you with a professional for a six-month mentoring relationship.

Our mentors can help you to succeed by:

  • enhancing your employability through confidence building
  • support with applications and interviews
  • networking and developing key employment skills
  • sharing knowledge and insights gained through the years

You have the chance to learn about opportunities available in specific career areas. With the help of a mentor as a role model, you will be able to build a solid foundation of skills from which you can launch a variety of successful careers.

Both the mentees and mentors are full of praise for the mentoring schemes, below is some feedback from both:


 “My mentor’s passion for his work is contagious and I have become interested in making my first step in pursuing a career in insurance as it sounded exactly what I want. If not for the CDC Mentoring Scheme, I might have never discovered this industry and my interest in it.”

Anastasiia Efremenkova
MSc Finance and Accounting


“This is by far the most well organised and effective mentoring scheme I have participated in. I felt that I was able to offer very relevant advice and support to my mentee, and learn a lot from her areas of interest at the same time.”

Ophelia Tsui
Talent and Development Specialist, Deutsche Bank
