I'm a student, why should I join a mentoring scheme?

Did you know that as a University of Plymouth student you can benefit from a mentor? We operate a total of three mentoring schemes, two of which take place at specified times throughout the year and a third, online scheme, that operates year-round.

There are many benefits to joining a mentoring programme. Alongside gaining invaluable knowledge and experience from a professional in your chosen sector, you will have access to practical support and an array of resources and tools available at your fingertips.

Whatever year you are in, mentoring can really broaden horizons and boost your career options, from CV support to mock interviews, top tips to social media connections, mentoring gives you a personalised way to develop your understanding of the sector you are interested in.

Why be a Mentor?
As a mentor you enter a one-on-one relationship formed to focus on the student or graduate's personal growth and long-term professional development. Your mentee will gain invaluable insight and you can refine your leadership and coaching skills.

  • Support others with your insight, expertise and guidance.
  • Gain new skills as you contribute to the professional development of others.
  • Share your own experiences and perspectives.
