INSPIRE Mentorship Programme


The "INSPIRE" Mentorship Programme aims to enhance students’ holistic education experience and facilitate both their personal, academic, and professional development through a robust network of role models and prominent leaders of the PolyU community.

During this mentoring partnership, mentees are expected to make full use of such a precious experience in order to:

  • Explore personal, academic, and professional development areas as well as untapped potentials;
  • Make valuable contacts and expand personal network;
  • Keep abreast of up-to-date business and operational practices as well as workplace culture; and
  • Seek constructive feedback for self-improvement.


  • PolyU students of any disciplines
  • Both PolyU undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • Highly proactive and committed with a strong desire to learn from a mentor
