Alumni Mentorship Programme
Mentorship is a way of transferring valuable experiences and knowledge from one person to another. It is a personal and professional development journey for both the mentor and the mentee.
Purpose of the Programme
The Mentorship Programme is an initiative taken by the alumni coordinators at Student Services. Participating departments are given an opportunity to connect their current students to their alumni in a mentoring capacity.
The main purpose of the Mentorship Programme is to connect alumni and students in a meaningful way, thereby creating a mutual benefit, and cementing a stronger relationship between all involved: the students, the alumni, and the department. The participating departments are responsible for responding to the needs of the students and alumni, and pair them.
Mentorship Programme Events Calendar, 2023-24
In addition to meetings between mentor and mentee, a number of larger meetings will be arranged during the course of the programme. During these meetings, participants will be given guidance and education so as to learn and develop in their roles.
