The Professional Entrepreneurial Mentoring programme matches students with a Business Mentor who are individuals from industry both alumni and non-alumni, all giving their time and knowledge to support undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students at the University of Plymouth. The programme is open to current UK students at the University, due to Visa restrictions Overseas students are unable to participate.
Students and Mentors work together over six months with a minimum four contact points. These contact points can be face to face, telephone calls, email conversations or via an online platform such as Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
Student applications are open throughout the academic year and you can join the programme at any time.
