These run throughout each academic year and offer students the opportunity to be matched to experienced professionals across a variety of sectors.  They involve a partnership between mentor and mentee based on sharing information, knowledge and experiences to support learning and career growth.   Applications are now open for the current academic year.

The schemes allow you to extend your knowledge of your chosen sector, to gain a greater understanding of the roles available, to build your confidence and to extend your professional network. 

The Career Mentoring Programme matches current students with professional mentors. The mentors come from a range of subject disciplines and will have over three years professional experience in their sector. The scheme runs for approximately 5 months and it is expected that mentors and students will have a minimum of five meetings.

If you are a current London Met student and would like to be mentored, please complete the application form.
