Student testimonials

As a final-year student, I found the Alumni Leaders Mentoring Program invaluable as I was paired with an experienced, enthusiastic and engaged mentor. Through diverse mentoring sessions, I broadened my understanding of a modern career and was challenged to think outside conventional career paths. This experience has been career-changing, and I would highly recommend that any student provided the chance, join the program!
