Alumni Leadership Mentoring

Open to undergraduates in their penultimate year. Plus medical and dental science students in their third or fourth year. 

The Alumni Leadership Mentoring Programme (ALMP) has been designed to help you decide on a career journey that is right for you and allows you to be the best you can be. Careers Network and the Alumni Office have sourced University of Birmingham graduates who are leading in their chosen field and want to share their experiences with you. Even with their busy schedules, they understand how important a mentor can be to motivating and empowering you to thrive in their life/work, which is why they have volunteered their time to help you!
