Mentoring and supporting students

Mentoring students

In the 2022-23 academic year, we will be offering two exciting volunteer programmes to support our students.

Help our students define their career and personal development goals. By connecting with students, you could help your mentee identify areas for development, enhance their confidence, expand their network and help to progress their career.

We ask our mentors to commit to three 40 minute meetings with their mentee. Training and mentor networking is available all year round. Meetings can take place face-to-face, by telephone or by video calling.

You can sign-up as a mentor, or find a mentor for yourself, at LSHTM Connect.



We need MSc alumni from across our School, with an interest in student wellbeing and desire to support new students, to steer groups of five students through weekly online encounters from September to December 2021. The programme is aimed at increasing inclusion, belonging and interdependency. 

If you have insight into the student experience and have a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, we think you might be great for this role. Training will be provided, and you’ll be part of a wider team led by Rachel Gould and Ford Hickson. 

You can register your interest by completing our online form.

Please contact Alice Perry in the Alumni Office if you have any questions about either of these volunteer programmes.
