Mentoring can make a big difference to your life and your future career prospects.
The Lancaster mentoring programme gives you the opportunity to spend time with a working professional, getting an insight into what they do and how they got there. Originally designed for undergraduate students, the programme has been running since 2008 and has become progressively more popular each year. Mentoring will help you assess your career goals and get you thinking in different ways about how to reach them.
The programme is mainly aimed at penultimate and finalist undergraduate students and is now available for Masters students.
You will need to be able to commit at least 16 hours in total during the mentoring period (November to May).
