The Black Excellence Network mentorship scheme is for UK based Year 13 students who are aspiring for competitive institutions and degrees. In July 2020, our first mentoring cohort launched with 100 mentees paired to 100 mentors! The scheme consists of a wide range of subject matches such as Medicine, Law, Economics, STEM and PPE.
Undergraduate/Graduate Mentor Applications are now OPEN for our 2021/2022 cycle!
Y13 Mentee Applications are now OPEN for our 2021/2022 cycle!
Mentorship Statistics 2020-2021
We send out monthly mentorship update via email to all current mentees and mentors which aid communications and provide potential academic and career based conversation topics.
Check out our latest updates!
In our 1st wave which took place in Summer 2020, mentees selected their mentor individually via our self-selection method. The pairs were then made accordingly. All unallocated mentors are still part of our network and may still be matched! For new mentee and mentor sign ups, we are currently allocating new mentees to mentors on a rolling basis depending on availability and suitability.
The Black Excellence Network is also about making connections and building rapport with fellow black students nationwide. If you have already discussed academia, career and lifestyle with your mentoring partner, continually check in to stay updated on their journey and current endeavours!
The mentoring platform at blackexcellencenetwork.net is designed to ensure that all communications take place in a supervised environment.These provisions are not restrictive but aim to ensure the safeguarding of all mentees. If you have been communicating with your mentee/mentor via an alternative platform then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make a note of this when monitoring frequency of communications.
