Birmingham City University is using its Ask BCU online mentoring scheme developed with Brightside to help students at two stages:
Stage 1 supports students who have been offered a place at BCU. These students are matched with an undergraduate mentor who can give them advice and support to prepare them for the transition to higher education.
Stage 2 supports BCU students in their penultimate and final years as they prepare for employment. Business mentors, including BCU alumni, support their journey from university into employment with advice and guidance.
