Mentoring for students
Our mentoring program allows students to get familiar with the working environment while still studying, and to see for themselves what a scientist’s career may look like.
Thanks to the mentoring program, students have an opportunity to gain valuable experience as well as contacts and references in the field. By working with a mentor, the student develops crucial skills and practices what one has previously learned only in theory. Participation in such a program will also help the student choose their future career.
Basics to mentoring at UCT
- Mentoring at UCT is free of charge for students.
- Students apply for a mentor that suits best their needs.
- The scheduling and topics discussed at mentoring sessions are strictly up to the two parties (mentor and mentee) to agree upon. We suggest meetings at least once a month.
- Besides meeting and talking to your mentor, you may also visit the mentor’s workplace or help them with a project. Again, the specifics are up for you to discuss.
from April 2019
Why become a mentor?
- You can pass your valuable experience onto the next generation of UCT students.
- The mentee brings a new, fresh perspective on your work.
- The program provides room for personal growth of both parties.
- You expand your contacts network.
