What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a unique opportunity whilst you are at university to learn from someone who can give you a real insight into their area and allow you to reflect on your own experiences.

To make the most of the opportunity it is important to understand that you are driver of the mentoring relationship. Our mentors have volunteered their time in addition to their daily job, so it's crucial to maintain momentum throughout the relationship.
