Mentoring programme 2023–2024

Are you interested in developing your career readiness and work-life skills during your studies? Would you like to network with LUT alumni? All this is possible in the LUT Mentoring Programme. 

What is mentoring? 

In the LUT Mentoring Programme alumni, who have graduated from the university, mentor the students, also known as actors. Alumni and students work in pairs making a process that emphasizes the students’ career readiness and helps defining their professional skill sets and strengths. For alumni, mentoring offers fresh viewpoints from the students’ world and an opportunity to reflect one’s own professional know-how. Mentoring is mutual interaction that requires activity, commitment, openness and trust from each party.
