How does it work?

The University offers three different types of mentoring programmes:

  1. University of Greenwich Career Mentoring Programme
  2. Oracle Career Mentoring Programme (School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences students only)
  3. Graduate Aspiration Programme

Mentoring is an integral part of our employability service, going beyond your university education. The programme creates a bridge that connects experienced individuals, like our alumni and employer partners with current students.

The University of Greenwich Career Mentoring Programme is available to students from all faculties, you can apply throughout your time at university, and up to two years post-graduation. During your time on the programme, you can expect to gain 1-2-1 professional advice, first-hand industry knowledge, an extra boost of confidence and connections to kickstart your career.

The programme runs from January - June, with applications open from September - October. You will have 1-4 hours of contact time per month with your mentor either virtually or in-person.

Thank you for organising and hosting the Green Careers Gala event over the last two days! I found it very valuable to hear from some of the companies and people working to make the world more sustainable.

This mentoring experience has expanded my horizons beyond my field of study and given me a fresh perspective. I have gained a deeper understanding of how to consistently deliver quality work, build a strong personal brand, effectively communicate my achievements, and managed my time and boundaries.
