UU Connects Mentoring Programme

Connecting current students and graduates with those working in industry. It’s time to inspire and be inspired!

Are you a current student or graduate of Ulster University?

Do you want to develop your network and receive career support?

Are you looking for your first job or planning your next move?

Or perhaps you are an experienced professional keen to pass on your knowledge to the next generation?

Why not take part in our mentoring programme where mentors (former students now working in industry, staff and friends of the University) provide one to one support, inspiration and guidance to mentees (current students or graduates) with their career aspirations, and their personal and professional development.

A partnership based on encouragement, constructive comments, openness, mutual trust and respect as well as a willingness to learn and share, being part of a mentoring relationship will prove invaluable.
