Become a mentor

Use your expertise and experience to help guide our students through their studies and help them realise their future in the social sciences field.

Did you study a Social Science subject?

We are looking for mentors who have studied social sciences to provide an insight into how they utilise their academic subject in their role. If this is you we would love to hear from you.  

How mentoring can benefit you

You can engage with undergraduate students early in their academic career; a great way to identify and support emerging talent.

It is an opportunity for you to use your expertise and experience to benefit the next generation in your field. As well as enriching students' academic studies, these insights can help students as they consider possible subject-specific roles after graduation.

What is involved

As a mentor, you will typically attend three meetings with a small group of students over a calendar year, providing advice and guidance based on your expertise and experience.

Get involved

Contact us on fssl-pln@bristol.ac.uk to discuss becoming a mentor.

I took part as a mentor as I gained a lot from my time at Bristol and I wanted to take the opportunity to give something back. It was great to find out that things I have learned were useful and interesting to my mentees and it helped me to think about my career and what I enjoy whilst I discussed it with others. I would definitely recommend taking part as a mentor; for a relatively small amount of effort, you can make a big difference for some current students.
