YCEDE Mentoring programme

Who is eligible to participate?

To participate as a mentee, we ask that you identify as black, Asian or minority ethnic and are a home (UK-domiciled) student currently or soon to be enrolled as a doctoral researcher at a YCEDE institution. This programme is open to PGRs in any year of their doctoral programme.

YCEDE mentors are research staff (postdocs, research fellows etc.), academic staff and professional service staff who hold a PhD. We are looking for mentors who have lived experience, research experience or awareness of the cultural context of underrepresented groups in higher education. Mentors will be provided with training prior to becoming a YCEDE mentor.

Both mentors and mentees are offered continued support throughout the mentoring programme.

How do I find out more?
