Alumni mentors provide an invaluable service by sharing their expertise and experience to help guide students in terms of their careers and studies.

We would therefore like to invite you to register as a mentor for students. The Alumni Mentorship Programme is a joint initiative organised by USB’s Alumni Office and Careers Office.

When USB students request mentoring services, they will be matched with an alumnus who can provide these services based on the mentor’s field of expertise, the location of both the student and the mentor, and other criteria. To help prepare alumni for this role, we host Mentorship Masterclasses. Our first Mentorship Masterclass was presented in March 2017. Another Mentorship Masterclass is planned for March 2018. This will be presented on campus as well as online (i.e. in blended learning format), allowing alumni from all over the world to link up via an internet-linked device.

What you need to do next

Please complete the registration form for alumni mentors. You can do this by clicking here​. We then compile a database of alumni who are willing to give back to USB by mentoring students. You will also be invited to attend the Mentorship Masterclass. This provides us with the capacity to support students with mentoring services and to match mentors with students.
