Talk to someone who has been there and done it

The UEA Mentoring Programme offers the chance to get great advice and guidance from somebody who was once in your shoes. Through one-to-one sessions, a mentor can help you broaden your horizons and guide you through your first steps into employment.

  • Confused about what you would like to do after your degree?
  • Do you lack confidence to approach professionals and take those next steps?
  • Need guidance and support from someone who's been there?
  • Have you identified the career sector you wish to pursue, but want some further information on the sector and how to progress?
  • Do you have a business idea you would like to turn into a reality?

If you answer yes to even one of these questions, then our UEA Mentoring Programme could be just what you need to navigate your path towards a career. Here's how a mentor could support you:

Six Month Mentoring Programme - One-to-one support from a mentor over six months for in-depth guidance and support.

Insider Insights Mentoring Programme - One-off information sessions designed to give you a greater insight into a particular sector.
