City's Professional Mentoring Scheme offers professionals the opportunity to inspire and guide our students through a six or nine month one-to-one mentoring relationship.
Since 2002 the scheme has successfully delivered 1,567 mentoring relationships between professionals and City students. On average the scheme brokers 400 mentoring pairs per annum. With 71 per cent of our mentors City alumni, 13 per cent City staff, and 16 per cent referred to the scheme or recruited by staff, we engage a diverse range of professionals who volunteer their time to mentor our 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates and Masters students.
In 2017 the Professional Mentoring Scheme won a Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Award. The Alumni Relations team would like to encourage our alumni to join this hugely rewarding scheme.
