Tell us about your mentoring experience.
My university experience has been maturing, life-defining and a rollercoaster!
The mentoring scheme has been the most useful university experience in helping me figure out my career path. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do before the programme; I knew I didn’t want to go into scientific research and wasn’t sure if I liked the career prospects of doing a nutrition masters, which I was considering. My mentor helped me unpick what my passions are, where my strengths lie and figure out where I wanted to take my career. This has also improved my self-confidence so much and taught me a lot about myself, which will benefit me greatly when I enter the next stage of my life.
With the skills I have gained from this programme, I have secured a place on the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme on their General Management programme which starts in September!
