Introducing the Mentoring Schemes

Mentoring is a unique opportunity that allows University of Birmingham students to enhance their experiences, by receiving one-to-one advice and guidance from a professional working in a particular sector. This can be a great way to understand how to succeed and be better prepared for the working world beyond graduation. For any queries please email

The university runs 3 mentoring schemes namely:

(1) Careers Network Mentoring –  providing mentors based on your desired career enabling you to seek invaluable advice throughout your time at university

(2) Alumni Leadership Mentoring – students gain advice from Birmingham alumni who are leading experts in their field, see past and present mentors here

(3) Graduate Mentoring –  helping final year students who have no prior mentoring experience and are yet to secure a job or seek further study after graduation

(4) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) mentoring-  helping LGBT students to get advice on how to be happy and fulfilled as an ‘out’ LGBT employee
