There are various face-to-face and eMentoring programmes available to Queen Mary students across the university. Through one-to-one relationships with a member of the Queen Mary alumni community, students are inspired to make better informed career choices.
The progress I’ve made during my career has been as a result of receiving advice and guidance from colleagues/leaders/family members who have helped me to make the right decisions at important times during my career. Having that support in place has been paramount in helping me to develop and progress. Hence, I was then inspired and motivated to mentor others to also achieve and be successful.— Miriam Hussain, (Biology BSc, 2004)
