Taking part in our mentoring programme is your way of getting information, advice and guidance about your future from a mentor. They could be doing the job you're aiming for, working in an area that interests you or have graduated from the same course as you.
Manchester Gold Mentoring has been running for over 15 years and is highly regarded by both mentors and students. You will choose your own mentor and will be in contact with them over a six-month period.
Manchester Gold Mentoring is a great opportunity for you to access the advice and support of someone who has experience, insights and hindsight. Many of our mentors are University of Manchester alumni who wish to give something back, share the knowledge they have gained of opportunities after graduation and guide current students. Some are also talent spotting for their organisation. All are volunteers and are willingly offering to work on a one-to-one basis with you. They will dedicate their time to building a mentoring relationship with you and helping you achieve your mentoring objectives which might include, for example:
We run three mentoring programmes per annum:
You can apply for the Autumn, Spring and the Finalists programme, if you are eligible.
Please note that we cannot always guarantee a mentor for each applicant. We do always receive many more applications than we have available mentors, particularly for certain industries.
Applications for the Manchester Gold Autumn programme are now closed. Applications for the Spring programme will open in January 2017.
