Mentoring involves sharing your knowledge, skills and experience to help your mentee progress to seek new opportunities at university and have a clearer idea of their career direction after graduation. It's more than giving advice, it’s about motivating and empowering your mentee to better understand themselves and their aims - and how they can get there. Students have shared their stories on how mentoring has made a difference to them.
The scheme runs each year from November until the following summer, and you should be prepared to give about an hour per month of your time. We welcome interest from all alumni - you do not have to have mentored before or reached the ‘top’ of your career to be able to be a mentor and we are also keen to hear from young alumni. We provide guidance and support on the mentoring process, and support is available to you.
