Our mentoring schemes are specifically tailored for busy researchers (PGRs and ECRs). You can get involved at your own pace as a 'research mentee' (where you can learn from a more experienced researcher) and a 'research mentor' (where you have the opportunity to advise other junior researchers). 

Transitions: PGR to PGR peer mentoring 

PGRs that are in their first year of the researcher degree are paired with later stage PGRs. Discover more about Transitions.

ARMS Mentoring 

ARMS stands for ‘Aspiring Researchers Mentoring Scheme’. PGR mentors in their first year and onwards are paired with late-stage undergraduates and taught postgraduates who are interested in progressing on to research of their own. Find out how to sign up to be an ARMS STARs mentor.
