There are many ways to help. You could be a recent graduate who shares insights into how best to prepare for the transition to working life, or a more experienced alum with extensive knowledge of your industry, who can provide up-to-date sector advice and long-term career guidance.


Varies according to the programme, but approximately 1-2 hours a month.

I volunteered to be a mentor as I thought it is something I would have benefited from when I was a law and languages undergraduate with no real idea what I wanted to be or what options were open to me
