We are delighted to announce that in 2020 we are launching the first edition of the COACH Mentoring Programme.

What is the COACH Mentoring Programme?

In the COACH Mentoring Programme, we will match Members of the COACH Alumni Community with current students of the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford. As part of the Programme, Mentors help their student Mentees realise the full potential that lies in them by supporting them with careers advice, encouragement and professional support, as well as showing them a constructive example.

The aim of the Programme is to create an opportunity for bilateral personal and professional development, in which Mentors and Mentees can inspire each other and exchange ideas, as well as reflect on their career goals and evolution.

Taking part in the Mentoring Programme is a voluntary engagement and our Mentors and Mentees do not receive financial remuneration for their participation.

Why is COACH launching a Mentoring Programme?

We would like to build a supportive and closely-knit community of Cambridge and Oxford Alumni and bring COACH Members closer to current students and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. We believe that the COACH Mentoring Programme is a great tool to do so!

How can I sign up and learn more about the details?

If you would like to learn more about the Programme, please read our Mentoring Guide.

Please click here if you would like to sign up as a Mentor. We accept Mentor applications from all COACH Members who have at least three years of professional experience since obtaining their first university degree and would like to help current Oxford and Cambridge students start their career.

Please click here if you would like to sign up as a Mentee. Applications on the Mentee side are currently open for Third- and Forth-year undergraduate students, as well as students completing their Masters degree who are enrolled at either the University of Cambridge or the University of Oxford. Students signing up need to have a connection to Hungary and in case of high demand, we prioritise applicants who are registered Members of our Partner Organisations, the Cambridge University Hungarian Society or the Oxford Hungarian Society.

We are grateful to all Mentors and Mentees who sign up for the Programme.

The deadline for applications is 26 February 2020.
