1-to-1 Industry Mentoring (Online and in-person approach) 

Our 1-1 industry mentoring programme aims to encourage and support graduating students to take the next step in their career development. Together, mentors and mentees catch up regularly to explore a variety of ideas and aspirations tailored to specific goals. This helps students to feel more confident, informed and engaged in the professional landscape while also enabling mentors to further develop their own skillset and build new connections across our vibrant College community. 

1-1 Mentoring programme runs from July to October, consisting of 5 mentoring sessions.

Apply to become a mentee by Sunday 15 May
