Mentor and Mentee having a discussion

The University of Westminster student mentoring schemes aim to link you with a professional who will enhance your employability.

Mentoring with help with confidence building, support with applications and interviews, networking and development of the key skills that employers seek. With the help of your mentor as a role model, you will be able to build a solid foundation of skills as you transition into the world of work.

We offer two schemes:

  • The Career Development Centre Mentoring Scheme that is open for all current students
  • The NMC Mentoring Scheme that is open to current UK/EU undergraduate students from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Background

Feedback from a 2015/2016 mentee: “The mentoring scheme had many things that I really appreciated. Firstly, the numerous people you meet is just incredible as they are very engaging and try to help in any way they can. Secondly, it’s the bond that was created with mentor who spared some precious time to help me reach my goals and got to know me as well. Finally, it is the skills and the new experiences that I gained and which is the most valuable thing I got from the scheme.”
