Welcome to eMentoring HQ!

Our eMentoring scheme fulfils the USIC Alumni vision of empowering students, graduates, and professionals so that our community can flourish. Each of us holds immense potential to help one another and by working together we can harmonise our efforts to inspire a community of goodness.

We aim to support University students during term-time to bring the community together by using USIC Alumni members as mentors. The primary beneficiary are the mentors and mentees who will gain valuable communication skills among others and thereby benefiting the community at large. This will be achieved through regular online communication.
