Project Access Mentor

What You'll Do: 
  • The core of the Project Access Program is one-on-one mentoring between less privileged applicants and current top university students.
  • You will be paired with a mentee, ideally from your country/region, who is interested in studying a degree similar to yours at King's.
  • 1-2 hours a month of your support can have a great impact. As a mentor, you provide applicants with encouragement, application support, tips and tricks throughout the application process, and provide support on everything from summer reading lists to personal reflections on moving away from home.
Why You'll Love It: 

Make a difference in a mentee’s life

You can quite literally change your mentee’s lives! Imagine the support you wish you had when you decided where to study or how to write your personal statement. With your experience, you can help your mentees realize their full potential and succeed at achieving their dreams, which offers you a unique opportunity to develop professionally while having a positive impact on equality and social mobility.

 

Join a network of inspiring students

You can join a team of more than 5,000 mentors who study at some of the world’s best universities. We have mentors at Ivy League universities in the US such as Harvard, Yale, or Stanford, other elite UK universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, or LSE, and at leading European universities such as Bocconi or SciencesPo. We also host regular campus events, conferences, and workshops, where you get to meet inspiring students and make new friends.

What You'll Learn: 

We provide training and resources for you to help your mentee succeed. You’ll learn and practice time management and interpersonal skills, and we help you to develop professionally by connecting you with like-minded students and partners.
