Event Fallback Image

All communication takes place through Brightside’s dedicated online mentoring platform, meaning you can have access anytime, anywhere.

Year 12 HE Explore & Apply Mentoring (Mid-May-July)

How does it work?

  • Tell us what you’re interested in studying when you leave sixth form or college
  • We will match you with a current university or college student mentor who is studying at Higher Education level
  • You will communicate with your mentor through a safe and secure online platform, getting 1:1, personalised advice and support to help you prepare for your next steps, from someone with extensive personal experience

What’s in it for you?

  • Gain insight into university study and student life
  • Get support with exploring different courses/subjects you are interested in
  • Receive advice on how to approach the summer break and get ahead with your application
  • Receive 1:1 support with putting together your personal statement or apprenticeship application

You’ll also have the opportunity to get continued mentoring support after the summer to help you with applications.
