Lancaster students are amongst the best future talent in the UK and are nurtured through an extensive employability support programme, reflected in their outstanding graduate prospects once they leave.Dedicated careers professionals create personalised career plans that encourage students to engage in employability skills workshops, employer presentations, valuable work experience and placements, and connect with alumni through initiatives like our Mentoring Programme.
Our mentoring programme matches professionals (mentors) with Lancaster University students (mentees). It provides a wonderful opportunity for mentees to gain ‘real-world’ insights, but also for mentors to share their wisdom.The goal of the mentoring programme is to give both mentors and mentees the chance to help one another enhance their professional development in areas such as leadership and communication. We’re always looking for employers who are interested in mentoring one of our students to help them launch their career.
The Lancaster Award, developed in partnership with employers, rewards students for taking part in extracurricular activities. This could include volunteering, work experience or attending careers workshops, each time acquiring new skills and experiences valued by employers. For more information about the award, please click here.The highest achieving Lancaster Award students are nominated for the Lancaster Excellence Awards. To reward their achievement, we invite employers to pledge an 'experience' in their organisation, for example a mentoring meeting with a senior leader, work shadowing or a behind the scenes insight experience of a dynamic and high profile industry. Do you have something interesting to share as a rewarding 'money can't buy' experience?
