New e-mentoring scheme to expand networking opportunities

From late autumn 2017, graduates and students at Newcastle University will have the opportunity to be a part of a professional online networking platform.

Newcastle University’s alumni community consists of over 190,000 graduates living in over 200 different countries and independent states around the world. E-mentoring is a new networking scheme that will provide graduates with an accessible platform to connect with Newcastle’s global alumni community.

The online network will be accessible to both graduates and current students. It will offer an opportunity for discussion, sharing knowledge and promoting new opportunities on a global scale, for alumni and students alike.

Anna Gardner, Alumni Programmes Manager, explains: ‘Wherever our graduates are now – and whatever they’re doing – they will be able to benefit even more from being part of Newcastle’s global alumni community.’

The e-mentoring scheme provides a fantastic opportunity for alumni to give back to the University. By sharing knowledge and providing an insight into life after university, you can improve the experience of current students.
