Each year, ten students are selected to participate on the programme, following an application process. Eligible students will be invited to apply via email, and will complete the process via an application form on CareerConnect.

Mentees on the Promentor Programme will receive: 

  • Training so students are ready to fully engage in the programme and are equipped with the tools to do so
  • Introductions to three mentors, currently working in their sectors of interest. Introductions take place in Hilary and Trinity Term  
  • Enhanced CV and internship application support from the Internship Office Mentoring Team  
  •  A £250 payment for each year that the mentee engages with the programme during their undergraduate degree
  • The opportunity to make a competitive application for up to £2,500 from the Promentor discretionary internship fund for internships and work experience opportunities. The deadline for funding is 10 May 2021

Mentors are expected to: 

  • Act as a sounding board to students, providing advice in relation to gaining access to your profession or industry sector 
  • Be available to meet students, and to support them during the year with occasional phone calls, Teams calls, or meetings. At present all meetings are to take place remotely
  • Commit to an initial meeting with one (or maybe more) students
