We offer two thriving mentoring schemes, both aiming to link you with a professional who will enhance your employability through building your confidence, networking and developing the key skills employers seek.

We offer the following two mentoring schemes:

  • The Career Development Centre (CDC) Mentoring Scheme, which is open for all current students.
  • The National Mentoring Consortium (NMC) Mentoring Scheme, which is open to current UK and EU undergraduate students from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds.

With the help of your mentor as a role model, you will be able to build a solid foundation of skills that can launch a variety of successful careers. 

“I really appreciate being allowed this fantastic opportunity. All the aspects of starting my career, which overwhelmed me back in September, are coming together in a realistic plan, including more effective covering letters, CVs, application forms and interviews. I can see great changes in myself compared to last year, with my main area of progress being my improved confidence and presentation skills.”  Quote from 2014–15 mentee.
