The Mathematical Institute has a mentoring scheme for graduate research students.  The aim of the scheme is to support students’ career and personal development.  A more experienced person (the mentor) assists the student (the mentee) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance their career and/or personal growth.


Students are encouraged to find a identify a mentor during their second/third term here.  

Our aim is that all graduate students who wish so should have a mentor assigned by the end of their first year here.


Please refer to the following guidance on the scheme:
