Mentor a current student

Hundreds of Greenwich students sign up every year to learn from established professionals. Here at Greenwich, each faculty have their own mentoring scheme suited to the needs of students and mentors. Ask Alumni will soon become the new home for mentoring at University of Greenwich, meaning alumni only need to apply once and can then manage their mentoring relationship with the same place, updating their experience and preferences along the way.

With each scheme, mentors and mentees with receive support via workshops, one-to-ones, and regular catch-up sessions with our staff to make sure you're getting the most out of mentoring. To find out about the different mentoring schemes at Greenwich visit the Employability and Careers Service website.

Once registered, visit Ask Alumni communities, join the mentoring community that most appeals to you and you will hear from one of our Employability colleagues in due course.

  • Ask Alumni has made it easy to connect with like-minded students and graduates, find information when I need to and see what the alumni community have been up to. I would recommend it!
