How much time?
Mentoring for the University of Nottingham is really flexible, can be done from work or home, and anywhere in the world, plus it can easily fit into your schedule.
There are several options available, including the quick "answer a student’s question", as well as supported mentoring for up to three students for 4, 12 or 24 weeks.
Hear from one of last year's mentors
Chief Operations Officer at NMD Pharma ApS, Denmark
"I find eMentoring very interesting. It helps me to reflect on my life choices and career path. I do it because I enjoy it – I find it fun! It’s given me a connection to a young person who is very talented who wants to come out into the world and make a difference. It’s been very rewarding."
Making a difference to our students
"It's been great to speak to somebody who did the same degree as me. It was a good way to find out about the possible paths I could take and learn from another person's experiences. My mentor really went out of her way to help me and I would like to thank her for being so approachable and helpful!"
