Benefits to getting involved 

There are quite a few benefits to being a Professional Mentee. Since 2002 over 800 students have experienced being mentored and most of them cite enhanced confidence and determination in pursuing their career aspirations as one of the biggest benefits.

Another positive outcome is an insight into the professional world and subsequent behaviours that one would need to employ in order to succeed. Yet every mentoring relationship is different and the benefits are also dependent on the goals that mentors and mentees set with each other.

When does it take place? 

Once or twice a month for a period of six months. The mentoring pair decides on meeting frequency together.

October and Postgraduate cohorts: October – April

February cohort: February - August

Where does it take place? 

Both on and off campus. Mentees are encouraged to meet at their mentor's workplace.

Who can apply? 

Applications are open to 2nd, 3rd year and Postgraduate students

This is a competitive scheme.  If shortlisted, will be invited to a 15 minute interview.  If successful, there is a mandatory training session before you are assigned a mentor.
