Postgraduate Mentor Scheme

The Postgraduate Mentor Scheme is a support network for prospective University of Birmingham students.

The mentors are experienced postgraduates who have previously studied or are currently studying at the University of Birmingham, and they will offer help and advice from a student perspective. 

We also have mentors from the UK, Europe and international countries, ranging from recent graduates to alumni who have progressed in their career since graduating from Birmingham.

Find out more about some of our mentors below, or search for a mentor in your subject.
