Become a mentor

Use your expertise and experience to help guide our students through their studies and help them realise their future in the social sciences field.

Did you study one of the following subjects?

  • Social Policy
  • Childhood Studies
  • Criminology
  • Sociology
  • Politics and International Relations
  • Economics
  • Accounting & Finance
  • Management

We are looking for mentors who have studied one of these subjects to provide an insight into how they utilise their academic subject in their role. If this is you we would love to hear from you.  

How mentoring can benefit you

You can engage with undergraduate students early in their academic career; a great way to identify and support emerging talent.

It is an opportunity for you to use your expertise and experience to benefit the next generation in your field. As well as enriching students' academic studies, these insights can help students as they consider possible subject-specific roles after graduation.

What is involved

As a mentor, you will typically attend three meetings with a small group of students over a calendar year, providing advice and guidance based on your expertise and experience.

The mentoring scheme has shed light on a whole new world within the field of economics and has made me more excited about my modules now that I can see how useful they are.
