Get ahead in your career with the Diversi-tees mentoring scheme

The scheme enhances the careers prospects of students who may be at a disadvantage when seeking employment.

I feel I have benefitted greatly from the scheme as I have been able to make various connections between the topics I am studying and how they are used in practice. Aside from gaining new knowledge the scheme provided me with a boost in confidence and motivation as it enabled me to enter a work environment new to myself and gain understanding of how and where I could fit into it.
