Postgraduate Mentoring

Be inspired and guided by professionals

Applications are now closed and will re-open in December 2021.

Our mentors have studied your degree to postgraduate level and are using this in their current role. This means they have been where you are now and can offer invaluable support and advice.

Mentors can offer new perspectives on possible career options and further support you to consider your studies in the context of the wider world.

What’s involved?

You will be matched with a mentor with up to four other students, based on your career aspirations and interests.

You have 3-4 meetings with your mentor across the academic year. Depending on where your mentor is based, the meetings can be virtual or in person (please see our Covid-19 page for further guidance). You will have the opportunity to ask your mentor questions and learn from their experiences and insights.

We offer a range of Mentoring Schemes for the following postgraduate students:

It provided the opportunity to develop a new professional relationship with an Educational Psychologist, who is now helping me to prepare for job interviews in that profession.

I learned how social consulting works and the different approaches a public policy student can provide to the company. Moreover, I saw there are other forms of consulting companies, not just the 'big 4'.

Now I can fully understand what job an educational psychologist does. So after the program, I can say that I know what to search for in my future career.
