Career Mentoring Programme

Mentoring can make a big difference to your life and your future career prospects.

Originally designed for undergraduate students only, the Programme has been running since 2008 and has become increasingly more popular each year. It aims to match you with someone in a career or industry area that interests you for the future. Even if you have no idea what career you would eventually like, we have mentors who can assist. Mentoring will help you assess your career goals and get you thinking in different ways about how you can reach them.

If you are interested in taking part in the Career Mentoring Programme, find out more in the Career Mentoring Programme Mentee Guide.
