Mentoring

Our students thrive when alumni give them real-life insights into the world of work.

As well as general advice on specific sectors, our students welcome practical help with job applications and how to excel at interviews.

You could be the mentor (face-to-face) or e-mentor (online) that launches a student’s career.

E-mentoring

  • An 8-week programme of listening and support
  • One hour-long meeting each week
  • Connect by video call, phone call or email
  • Available to alumni worldwide

I've always found mentoring to be a rewarding experience and one that challenges me to stay at the forefront of my field too.
