Mentorship Programme

  • To facilitate the educational, social and personal growth of mentees
  • To develop mentees’ fullest potential, vision and aspirations for the future
  • To enhance mentees’ future professional and career development and establish a good network that is beneficial to their social and personal lives
  • To help groom mentees to become preferred graduates
  • To empower mentees to face challenges in society

Programme Operations

Every mentee will have a personal mentor via self arrangement made at the first gathering or assignment by the Department, if the mentee does not join the gathering. It is possible that a mentor will take on more than one mentee but it depends on the maximum number of mentees that the mentor can afford. The mentoring period will last for one academic year.

To facilitate a stronger relationships between the mentor and mentee(s), the Department will organise workshops or activities within the academic year. We also encourage mentors and mentees to know other pairs through these occasions and establish a good bonding for the group as a whole.


General Responsibilities for mentor and mentee

Responsibility for an ethical approach to mentoring is shared by everyone involved in the process. Such an approach covers confidentiality to protect sensitive and personal information, and a belief in the right and ability of mentees to make their own decisions. Other basic values that underpin mentoring include treating people with respect and honesty, and the mentor being impartial and non-judgmental.
