Oxbridge ISoc Mentoring

What's in it for mentees?

GET ADVICE FROM CURRENT OXBRIDGE STUDENTS

Becoming a mentee matches you with an Oxford or Cambridge student placing you only an email away from expert advice, experience and insight that cannot be found in a prospectus. All our mentors have successfully been through the Oxbridge application process so they’re well-placed to provide you with their insider knowledge!

Please bear in mind they cannot guarantee a successful application or provide specific interview details.

Can my mentor give me a mock interview?

YES, JUST OPT IN AT SIGN UP

The Mock Interviews are specifically for those who may have interviews coming up and want the extra practice from an Oxbridge student. Our students are trained to run an interview, can provide feedback on exactly how you did and suggest improvements for you to make. This is all about confidence building and familiarising you with the style of interviewing at Oxbridge colleges.

What happens after you've signed up?

WE MATCH YOU UP

We will use the information that you’ve provided to match up the mentees with the most suitable mentor. Once we’ve successfully paired you, you can begin your mentor-mentee journey. How you choose to contact each other is entirely up to you.

HELP THE NEXT GENERATION OF ISOC MEMBERS

Becoming a mentor enables you to use your own experiences to build the confidence and raise the aspirations of school pupils considering applying to Oxbridge, but who may not be equipped with the tools and resources required to achieve their full potential.

Mock interviewing your mentee

YOU CAN OPT IN TO OFFER THESE TO YOUR MENTEE AT SIGN UP

This is an additional opportunity which enables you to partake in mock interviews for school pupils who are interested in your subject. We all know how daunting it can be to get through an Oxbridge interview and here is your chance to put someone else in the hot seat.

What if I don't have time?

YOU CAN OPT IN TO OFFER THESE TO YOUR MENTEE AT SIGN UP

IT’S COMPLETELY UP TO YOU HOW MUCH TIME YOU SPEND We understand how busy everyone is and therefore this opportunity would be as much time as you’re willing to put in. You are not on your own though! We do provide full guidance and support to all our mentors and all we ask for in return is a minimum of one email a week or simply answering any queries your mentee has. From previous experience, this tends to be a very low-commitment role but the benefits are abundant!
