Undergraduate Mentoring

Be inspired and guided by professionals

How mentoring can benefit you

Our mentors have studied your degree and are using it in their job. 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 help you to consider your studies in the context of the wider world.

From the 20/21 academic year, we will be recruiting mentors from across the globe so, whether you are a home or international student, you will have the opportunity to gain specialist UK or international job market insight.

What’s involved?

We will connect you with a mentor and around four other students, based on your career aspirations and interests.

We arrange the first meeting, then your group will arrange two further meetings. 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 also ask you to complete a short reflective report on your experience.

Applications have now passed and will re-open in the 2021/22 academic year

I have been incredibly pleased with how the Professional Liaison Network have approached the pairing process with the mentors – they were very understanding and flexible. There were many options to choose from and they did a thorough job matching us with mentors from all sorts of backgrounds.

Taking part in the Mentoring Scheme really helped me because I realised that there were so many options available to me when going into Accounting. Initially, I thought my degree was relatively narrow, whereas now I recognise the countless possibilities. The Mentoring Scheme allowed me to gain a practical understanding of the workplace and helped develop my communication skills and my mentor frequently gave me advice on how to stand out to employers.
