University mentoring

What is university mentoring?

University mentoring enables current KES pupils to receive advice about different universities and university courses from Old Edwardians who left in the last three years and who are studying at university now. Many OEs, studying at a range of universities and studying a range of courses, have signed up to offer university mentoring.

Who is it useful for?

University mentoring is useful for current pupils, particularly those in the Divisions and Sixths, who are making their university choices and want to find out more about what a particular university or a particular course is like from someone who is already there or already studying it.  It can also be useful for a current pupil who has already decided about their university choice but wants to find out the "inside track" on studying there - e.g. which halls of residence / College to apply for, which are the best societies to join etc.  

How does it work?

Once you have been put in touch with a university mentor you are free to contact them by email. We suggest that mentoring should take  place virtually (i.e. by email and phone) but if you want to meet your mentor that is up to you.    Please read our terms and conditions before contacting the mentor.

How do I find a university mentor?

Simply search for a mentor by logging into My KES, the online Old Edwardian community. Once you have found someone you want to contact fill in the careers advice request form and we will then get in touch with the contact details of the career mentor. Please be aware that if some mentors are oversubscribed we may not be able to put you in touch with them.
